Peeking Under the Hood

This chapter takes you inside the workings of the Macintosh more than any other chapter in this book. Still, you can understand and use the material in this chapter without any special software or any particular skills other than those already described. So, stick around. Don't rush or skip to the next chapter.

If you make an effort to master this material, you will be amply rewarded. For example, it can aid in solving problems locating or opening files, as described in Chapter 6. It will be immensely helpful in understanding problems with graphics formats, as described in Chapter 10. It bears on how applications import and export files of different formats (as discussed in several chapters). Finally, it allows you to do some neat tricks that you will meet for the first time in this chapter.
