Mac::PropertyList::ReadBinary - read binary property list files
# use directly use Mac::PropertyList::ReadBinary; my $parser = Mac::PropertyList::ReadBinary->new( $file ); my $plist = $parser->plist; # use indirectly, automatically selects right reader use Mac::PropertyList; my $plist = parse_plist_file( $file );
This module is a low-level interface to the Mac OS X Property List (plist) format. You probably shouldn't use this in applications—build interfaces on top of this so you don't have to put all the heinous multi-level object stuff where people have to look at it.
You can parse a plist file and get back a data structure. You can take that data structure and get back the plist as XML (but not binary yet). If you want to change the structure inbetween that's your business. :)

- new( FILENAME | SCALAR_REF | FILEHANDLE )
Opens the data source, doing the right thing for filenames, scalar references, or a filehandle.
Some of the ideas are cribbed from CFBinaryPList.c
