DMGExtractor converts Mac OS X Disk Image file to ISO File (Java 5 required)

This is a lightweight Java application for extracting the contents of a Mac OS X Disk Image file (extension .dmg) to raw binary format (such as an ISO file). It can handle most disk images of type CUDIFDiskImage, with the exception of UDCO images (using a compression method that is unknown to me).
Note that not all files with the file extension ".dmg" are UDIF encoded. Some are encrypted, and need an additional decryption layer to load. Others are raw, and do not contain any block structure (i.e. they can be restored or burnt directly to disc).

This application has been tested and developed under version 1.5.0 (5.0) of the Sun JDK. Anything less is probably insufficient.
The program is suited for both console and graphical use. If want to use it in console mode, you should download the zip file distribution. Running the script (unixes) or hfsx.bat (windows) will print out some usage information.

This program started as a Java port of vu1tur's dmg2iso program, but dmg2iso didn't work for me on any of the files I tried using it with, so I rewrote it in Java, and subsequently added a lot of new features. I also made a very basic GUI (dialog based).
