Files function or Tiger bug?

Eric Chatonet
Hi all,

Mac OS X issue (Tiger)
When working on the "Getting the type code of a file under OSX"  
thread, I noticed that the long files function return an empty  
filetype for TextEdit files (raw text or RTF).
FileBuddy reports correctly, Rev not.
Could you confirm?

Best Regards from Paris,

Eric Chatonet.

Hi Eric,

I had no problem here with regards to the long files function
correctly identifying text files. By raw text I assume you mean a type
code of TEXT, right? Long files correctly finds this. When I checked a
number of .rtf files created by TextEdit, they came up blank because,
apparently, TextEdit only uses the file extension to specify a .rtf
file and the long files correctly reports the type as empty (the long
description ends with a comma).
