Mounting HFS Plus with Read Write Enabled on Linux

Using information from the following links, I removed all references CFSwapInt32HostToBig and its dependencies and substituted CFSwapInt32HostToBig with bswap_32.

The program compiled (albeit with warning messages).

To run the program, simply use sudo ./a.out /dev/sdXX

where /dev/sdXX is the partition you need to mount.

Then you should be able to mount using the following
sudo mount -t hfsplus -o rw,user /dev/sdXX /media/hfspart

For your convenience, you may find my modified code at the following url:
