This package is a port of Apple's tools for HFS+ filesystems.
For users, HFS+ seems to be a good compromise to carry files between MacOS X and Linux Machines, as HFS+ doesn't suffer the problems of FAT32 like:
* huge space waste (in slack space as devices grow faster); * ability to create files that are more than 4GB in size (especially good for those working with multimedia and that need to carry large ISO files); * ability to use case preserving (and even sensitivity!); * ability to use uid's and gid's on the filesystem.
Users in general can enjoy such benefits since it is expected to have more HFS+ filesystems in use, as Apple has announced Macintoshes for ix86-64, besides the filesystem being already supported by PowerPC systems since the beginning.
hfsprogs for Debian ------------------- This package currently only provides mkfs.hfs (mkhfs) and fsck.hfs (hfsfsck). In the future, it may provide more tools from the Darwin sources, such as a utility to tune a filesystem, like disabling the journaling of the filesystem. It includes a patch from from Gentoo, as described in their wiki: <http://gentoo-wiki.com/HOWTO_hfsplus>. -- Rogério Bri more»
