comment OSX - Parental Controls - System Preferences - Unchecked - But Not Blocked - Why?
Hi Luke, that will not prevent a user from gaining access to the System Preferences, and some of the panes will not require unlocking such as Desktop & Screen Saver pane.

comment How to create line breaks between extended attributes OSX xattr (jwodder)
@Daniel Beck, Extended File Attributes en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Extended_file_attributes Xattr is the name of several applications that do similar but different tasks so it can be rather confusing to differentiate. I put the name (jwodder) there because that is one developer responsible for one of the xattr applications, Bob Ippolito pypi.python.org/pypi/xattr is another, then there is Matt Lye sourceforge.net/projects/xattr, and there are probably more. I don't know who is responsible for the version that comes installed with OSX.

I wasn't expecting to receive an answer from the coder, but thank you very much for your application and the patched version. I will certainly follow that link.

DOH! My hat off to you sir. Permissions mismatch indeed. Make as the user that extracted the tar works. I can now see a lovely "-P" in the xattr help and presumably "-s" (set) is write. Thank you Chris.

many thanks for yet another xattr :) I downloded the tar, extracted it, then "$ make" from the folder containing the Makefile. I then got the following: "gcc -o xattr xattr.c -std=c99 -O2 ld: can't open output file for writing: xattr collect2: ld returned 1 exit status make: *** [xattr] Error 1" I don't know how to make this makefile work :( Also thank you for the lesson in the definition of a symbolic link :)
