Sorry, no. Umm, in fact I used PCTools years ago.
But you can use any text editor that won't alter anything else. The G
is in GIFFormat:Simple but it is unicode, hence there is a '\0'
between each character.
Or use Basilik and a MacOS Hex editor - General Edit Lite, BrainHex,
HexEdit, ResEdit with the proper module, MPW with Rez and Derez.
(that's what I prefer, especially with big files, like a 16 MB Disk
Image of some CF card I have around ;-).
Or try to send the package by e-mail, modify it directly while in the
InBox provided that it is really copied, ... no. Anyway DON'T alter
the package while in the Package Soup (at best you'll get a -10061,
at worst, you'll loose everything on your Newton).
