Definitions for "MacBinary"
A file format that combines the three parts of a Macintosh file: the data fork, resource fork, and Finder information block. No other computers understand the normal Macintosh file format, but they can transmit the MacBinary format without losing data. When you download a binary Macintosh file from another computer using the MacBinary format, your communications program automatically reassembles the file into a normal Macintosh file.
An encrypted file type (with a .bin file extension), generally used to protect Macintosh files being sent over the Internet.
A standard for storing resources in a Macintosh's data fork. Also the name of an application that decodes and encodes MacBinary files.
