plist binary file: view or edit without additional software :-)

whenever you install itunes || co, you will have installed al required stuff already. so to view the content of your plist file use following batch file:
you need plutil in the folder %commonprogramfiles(x86)%\Apple\Apple Application Support

then you can also convert back to binary with that tool.
show_plist.bat [plist-file]

cd %commonprogramfiles(x86)%\Apple\Apple Application Support
echo now showing "%1"
echo plutil -convert xml1 -o - "%1"
plutil -convert xml1 -o - "%1"

or to convert them directly:
Bin to XML: plutil -convert xml1 file.plist
XML to Bin: plutil -convert binary1 file.plist
