Bare Bones Software has released Super Get Info 1.0, its new utility for Mac OS X.

The utility supplements OS X's built-in Show Info command, helping it provide more information about files and folders contained on the hard drive.

It lets users view and edit the Mac OS type and creator codes for given files. It also enables users to view and edit the Unix owner, group and permission settings for files and folders. A file's creation and modification dates can be altered, and the full path name for given files can be copied to the Clipboard, or via drag-&-drop.

The utility also allows users to open an information window for each selected Finder item, so that multiple selected items can be viewed and edited.

Rich Siegel, founder, president and CEO of Bare Bones Software said: "With the release of BBEdit for Mac OS X, we led the way in building a bridge between the power of Unix and the accessibility of the Mac OS.

"Super Get Info continues that work by making the basic properties of files and folders accessible without requiring users to resort to the Unix command line."

The utility costs $20, a 14-day timed demo version is available for download.
