There is a program called mac-ette which can be found at a number of DOS 
archive sites. (Try
ftp://oak.oakland.edu/Simtel/msdos/diskutil/macett30.zip).
It works only for DOS and doesn't work in a DOS window as far as I
recall, but has no file size or time limits.  It saves your choice of
data or resource forks, and understands Mac subdirectories.  The file
renaming scheme is a bit odd, as it doesn't give you a choice of
filename extensions, but try it.  I don't recall its shareware status or
if there is a registered version that is more friendly.
