Mark, Brian,

Thanks for the quick and helpful replies. I searched my notes for
these and could not find them so I appreciate the help.

One option would be to use shell() to tar + zip the file.

Something like:

get shell("tar -czf MyApplication.tgz")
put url ("binfile:MyApplication.tgz") into the tCustomProperty of this stack
put the tCustomPropery of this stack into url ("binfile:MyApplication.tgz")
get shell("tar -xzf MyApplication.tgz")

What is the procedure of getting a Rev standalone Mac app (bundle)
into a custom property?

I can get the component files within the bundle, I can copy files and
folders but I can't seem to find the magic words for getting the
bundle into a cprop.
