Technical Note TN 1188 Packages in Mac OS 9
« on: February 02, 2017, 10:39:13 AM »

This Technote describes how the Finder implements packages in Mac OS 9. Developers interested in creating packages for use in Mac OS 9 can use this document as a guide for creating packages. Mac OS 9 packages offer a simple consolidated experience for the user when interacting with a package in the Finder's windows, while at the same time preventing accidental tampering with a package's required support files.

For Mac OS X package compatibility, an additional package specification for Mac OS X will be released as an adjunct to the Mac OS 9 package specification described in this document. Upon release of this additional specification, developers will be able to create packages to be used in either Mac OS 9 or Mac OS X.
