The functions for creating and reading resources are in Carbon.Res, the
for creating a file with a resource fork are in Carbon.File (there are
functions in Carbon.Res too, but they are older, and you may have
problems with long file
names or so). These all pretty much follow the Apple documentation
(except that they're methods on objects where applicable, in stead of
functions taking the objects as first argument).
macostools.py has some examples, and (if you have a source
distribution) more can be found in Mac/Lib/ and Mac/Demo/PICTbrowse and
various other places in Mac/Demo.
