   I just uploaded ver.0.30 to CPAN.  There are many enhancements and 
bugfixes, especially possible memory leaks of MacOSX::File::Info.  If 
you are already using it, be sure to upgrade it.
   It also comes with pgetfinfo and psetfinfo, which names I think are 
   In a course of writing these modules I found a bug which is left to be 
fixed.  Files w/ Unicode names don't copy well.  This is due to the fact 
that MoreFiles, a library from Apple, supports only FSSpec-based 
operations while FSRef-based, FSSpec-free operation is required to fully 
support Unicode names.
   To achieve that I have to reimplement (some parts of) MoreFiles but it 
won't be so easy.  So I decided to release preliminary version since 
0.10 had a fatal bug of possible memory leaks....
