Invalid Parameters?

2007-08-13 Thread Bobbie
A new user e-mailed me a ZIP archive containing a Web archive exported from her 
Yojimbo. As received here, the export is an RTFD file. The ZIP has the unlikely 
file name Unknown Parameter Value.

The sender used Allume's Stuffit Pro to create the ZIP, and the name must have 
been created by Stuffit. I don't have Stuffit available to confirm that though.

When I attempt to e-mail the Web archive (un-zipped) from my desktop to yet 
another party, Mailsmith 2.1.5 refuses to accept the enclosure. There is no 
error message when dropping the icon into the enclosure pane; it just bounces 
out. However, if it is dropped onto the MS icon in the dock, then this error 
appears:

Invalid parameters were detected for an operation (Mac OS Error code -50). 

The original file opens and views OK on my receiving Mac in Yojimbo and in 
TextEdit; opens but nothing shows in TextWrangler. 

Is this incompatibility of the Yojimbo export with Mailsmith a bug, a feature, 
or a quantum mechanical act? Or could it be that the user somehow extracted the 
Web archive incorrectly from Yojimbo?

It's a function of the document format; an RTFD document is not a file but
a package (folder), and thus can't be attached directly to a message.


(PS: Since a web archive is a monolithic file, if you got an RTFD, either
the original item wasn't a web archive, or some sort of conversion must
have taken place after the item was exported from Yojimbo--possibly during
creation by StuffIt but I don't have a copy to hand right now to check
either. :)

As there is no such thing as StuffIt Pro and never has been (it's
StuffIt Deluxe), I have a feeling that your user has more terminology
problems than he or she may be letting on, and may not have performed
the procedure you are imagining to create the file you received.

You got that right, Matt :-) I telephoned the sender and got a step-by-step of 
the actions taken to create the Web archive. It isn't. 

However, the Pro incorrectly substituted for Deluxe is my own error. I 
haven't used the Deluxe version of $tuffit for years, had misremembered the 
name.
