    I am designing an application which needs to associate a small amount of metadata with every file and folder in a specified set of folders.

    Before I re-invent the wheel is there a way using spotlight or another built-in library to access and store this kind of data ?

    Thanks,

    Dave.

    Yes, there is a Cocoa API and I believe you can do it in AppleScript. Google could probably tell you more ;)
