Maconv is a Linux software that can convert all kinds of old Macintosh formats, including MacBinary, Stuffit archives and HFS disk files.


Maconv has three sub-commands:

  • maconv c [options] input-file [output-file]
  • maconv e [options] input-file [output-folder]
  • maconv d [options] input-folder [output-file]

The c sub-commamd converts a file from a format to another. The e sub-commamd extracts a Stuffit archive (versions 1 and 5) or a HFS disk image. The d sub-commamd creates an HFS disk image from a folder (like a file archiver).

You can get more information about these commands with maconv -h or man maconv.

Maconv supports the following container formats: MacBinary, AppleSingle.

Also, Maconv can extract old Stuffit archives (encoded with compression method 0, 1, 2, 13 or 15).
