Extracting PICT resources

I'm converting an old Hypercard app to Revolution. That app used PICT  
resources in stacks to store images. There are hundreds of them.  
Before I start doing them one by one in Photoshop, does anyone know  
whether I could write a rev stack to automate this? I've looked at  
the commands that work with Mac Classic resource forks, but I don't  
know enough about how they're structured to try to extract just the  
PICT resources. Has anyone tried anything like this? Failing that, is  
there existing software that does this? I've tried GraphicConverter,  
which purports to do batch conversions, but I couldn't make it work  
with PICT resources.
