GC will open .icns files, but not MacOS X .rsrc files, so I'd still  
need a way to get the .icns resources into separate files.

But , no, unfortunately I want to be able to obtain the rendered icon  
from a .icns file and this file is stored on a removable volume. When  
the volume is mounted, I want to be able to grab the icon from the  
file on the volume.

Is there really no way to access MacOS X .rsrc (theme) files under  
RunRev or a way get an Icon and a rendered image?

All the Best
