MacBinary definition

file format
An eight-bit wide representation of the data and resource forks of an Macintosh file and of relevant Finder information. MacBinary files are recognised as "special" by several MacIntosh terminal emulators. These emulators, using Kermit or XMODEM or any other file transfer protocol, can separate the incoming file into forks and appropriately modify the Desktop to display icons, types, creation dates, and the like.
