iChat Message Parser

This EnScript parses *.ichat messages of the type created by the Mac OS X Messages application.

The script will write its output in the form of bookmarks and individual text files, one per *.ichat file. The latter will be written into a folder of the user's choosing.

Please note that the script only supports plaintext message content; it does not support binary attachments. Emoticons will be visible in the output-files provided they're viewed on a system that supports them, Mac OS X for instance.

Timestamps are interpreted taking into account the TZ settings of the associated evidence file.
