It's for messing with the flags in an uninstalled package file, ie. a package
on your Mac or PC. I wrote a similar utility a long time ago:

You can disable the copy protection bit and enable/disable package
compression on install.

There's also a Perl version of my utility that just unpacks the package
header, but doesn't write any flag changes back.

I wrote it all up as a document that's part of the Newton Bowels project:
