Well... it's SIGGRAPH week. Which means it's time to engage in that bi-annual ritual of of feeling somewhat stupid and ever so slightly scared.

Convert Apple binary plists to xml plists and back again

Apple binary plists can be converted to human readable xml thus:

plutil -convert xml1 binplist.plist

And, should you have the need, can be converted back again:

plutil -convert binary1 binplist.plist

It's worth noting that this is an in-place conversion that will overwrite the original file and so you should make a copy if whatever part of the OS you're messing around with first.
