Can FreeBSD read/write HFS+?

I'm trying to share an external hard drive between an OS X system and a FreeBSD system, but I'm wondering whether I should format it as UFS or HFS+. This decision, of course, would be made easy of one of the OS's could not read the other's filesystem. I do know, however, that OS X can read and write on both of the filesystems, and also that HFS+ provides many features superior to that of UFS.

I do not need to be able to boot FreeBSD on HFS+, it just needs to be able to read and write it. Is this possible?

Thanks,

Jordan

Yeah, I did actually, I searched HFS+ and HFS, got no results (which I am really confused about). When searching right now, I still get no results, but your link does work and does show that I am an idiot.

Sorry about this though... I'm not one to ask without searching first.

If you are not happy with search features on some site use Google.
