Who can help me?
I downloaded the Apple glossary, but being no Apple user but a Windows user, I am not able to open it.
Is there a solution for this problem?

Thanks to anyone who can help me out!

Hi Linda,

which glossary did you download? On Apple's website they are talking of several different ones, including one which can be used online. IMO you should be able to open them even without a Mac:)

Which glossary did you download?
If it is the one from the Apple ftp server (with the extension sit.hqx) you need StuffIt to unpack the glossary. It's not working with WinZip.
With StuffIt, there's no need for a Macintosh, you should be able to open it on a Windows machine, too.

Hope that helps.

Link Jul 27, 2004

Hi Charlotte,

Thanks for your help so far!
I used this link: ftp://ftp.apple.com/developer/Tool_Chest/Localization_Tools/Apple_Intl_Glossaries/Apple_Intl_Glossaries_TXT/
but if you have a more useful link which can be opened in Windows, please let me know!

Bye!

Linda

So far I haven't seen anything, but Jul 27, 2004

you may want to download StuffIt Expander from www.stuffit.com, it's free and works also on PC. Originally it was designed for Mac but it will extract all those Windows-based files as well.

BTW, I just found a nice list of extracting-tools (though a bit old): http://www.uea.ac.uk/itcs/alphafaq/decode.html

HTH!

You need Mac OS X Jul 27, 2004

Even if you get Stuffit and unpack it, you won't be able to open the dmg file.

Best,
Esther

I tried to download one of those glossary-files to my PC (Windows 98), unpacked it with StuffIt and could read it without problems in Wordpad (being too large for Notepad). Did I miss something?

ps It should have been Windows 98, don't know why it turned into that smiley.

I hadn't checked the glossary Linda was talking about, I had assumed it was a recent one, for which what I said still holds. But since it's a document from 1997, it doesn't have the dmg suffix.

Sorry for the misunderstanding.

More recent version? Jul 28, 2004

Esther, do I understand that you have a more recent glossary?
Can you inform me about the link? It might be very useful. At least we can try to open it...:-)

Thanks!
