So if you don't know what it is, what do you need it for? And what does it have to do with Qt Designer?

If you want to know what the resource fork is check Wikipedia (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Resource_fork), but this has nothing to do with Qt Designer, so please ask such questions in a more appropriate section.

You want to avoid resource and data forks. These are specific to the Mac OSX HFS file system. The problem with them is that it's too easy to "strip" off the forks when you zip up or email a file. These have been deprecated in OSX, so while they are still around, you should not depend on them.

If you need to create application specific resources, either use the Resources subdir of the application bundle, or use Qt's resources.
