If you want to edit a plist file in text format, first convert it from binary format to xml format using plutil [1]:

plutil -convert xml1 yourpropertyfile.plist

After editing in text format, convert back the property file to binary format using plutil [1]:

plutil -convert binary1 yourpropertyfile.plist
