Can anyone tell me if Mac OS X has a "registry", like Windows? I
basically need a place to store an encrypted password, and I need
someplace to store it where people would be unlikely to find it.
Putting it in the preferences folder would be too obvious. My
PC-buddies were telling me that the registry might be a good option, but
I don't recall reading anywhere that Mac OS X has such a thing.
This password just needs to be stored, and then the user reboots their
Mac, and then in the startup folder will exist a .rev app that reads the
password and acts upon it, and then deletes it, so it doesn't need to
hang around after that point.
