Most likely, no. But there are some alternativesOriginally posted by stoid
Will there ever be a ResEdit version for Mac OS X??
The Unix architecture really doesn't have much to do with it. The resource structure implementation is all Apple.Is there another program for X that does the same thing, or is the Unix architerture making such apps impossible??
You can go into a .app and pull out/modify icons and such just like you could with ResEdit. For other application settings you can modify the .plist files with any text editor that understands XML. How is that not going into the files?Originally posted by Xapplimatic
I think saying that the mere fact that a CLI exists under OS X makes Res Edit for X is really exagerating. Most Mac users are GUI-dependent and are highly resistent to having to use a CLI to do things because it makes using the computer nolonger easy -- thus violating the whole concept of the Mac which was to be point and click simple. I'm not against CLIs, I use it all the time to do compiling work, but I wouldn't expect most Mac users to be happy with not having a version of Res Edit for X. Clearly you can't do everything in the CLI that you could do with Res Edit. If we could, I wouldn't have to run Res Edit every few weeks in Classic mode. CLI only has the power to manage files and their relative storage, it can't go deeper than that, into the files themselves..
With a little ingenuity, you don't have to.Originally posted by King Cobra
And I would not want to pay $256 for an application that functions as ResEdit.
I concur. CLI has it's place for editing files that are text based. But you can't edit some resources with the CLI, you have to use a GUI-resource editing program.Originally posted by Xapplimatic

For the most part, X resources are the same as pre-OS X, just in a different form. ResEdit is needed for the tasks you cannot complete w/o a gui. CLI is needed for the Unix underpinnings. CLI/ResEdit work hand in hand. For example, you can't edit a picture resource with CLI and you can't edit Unix file permissions with ResEdit.Originally posted by Geert
Res edit was an app, created by Apple to support developers, since most of the underlyings where topsecret.
But X is on CLI (open source), res edit is no longer needed.
everything is right there.
