Unix Utility to create Mac resource fork

Then how does the res_edit program work on the Mac?
The user simply assigns a file type, such as
this file was created by using MacDraw, and is therefore a pict file.

I've looked at a number of resource forks on my AppleShare volumes
on served on my Unix machines. (The GatorBox, Syntax, and
Pacer software can be configured to keep the resource fork
in a separate file.) Here's the dump of a RESOURCE FORK of an ABI file:

od -c %1:2f9:2f95DOROTHY16_43SS

0000400

I'm just wondering
where one would find the record format for the resource fork.
