BINHEX(L)										BINHEX(L)

NAME
       binhex - Hexifies a series of files

SYNOPSIS
       binhex [ - options ] [ files ]

DESCRIPTION
       binhex  takes the files specified in files and hexifies them in BinHex 4.0 format on stan-
       dard output subject to the options specified.  If files also  specifies	directories  they
       are  followed recursively, and all files found will be hexified.  If no files parameter is
       specified, binhex reads a MacBinary stream from standard  input	and  hexifies  the  files
       found; folder information is lost.

OPTIONS
       In the absence of any options, binhex takes the specified files and silently hexifies them
       to BinHex 4.0 format, writing the result to standard output.  Directories named	in  files
       are  followed  recursively,  all files found will be hexified.  Files are assumed to be in
       MacBinary format.  However, if the filename ends with .info the file is assumed to be  the
       info  fork  of  a MacIntosh file split amongst more than one file.  In that case the files
       with .data and .rsrc extensions are also read (if present).  Also, if  the  info  fork  is
       mentioned  in  the  parameter  list, the names of data and resource forks can also be men-
       tioned, but those will be ignored (this is to allow wild-card  expansion  by  the  shell.)
       Further, if some form of AppleShare is supported by the installed program, and if the cur-
       rent directory, or one of the directories found during recursive processing, is	a  direc-
       tory  in  the  format  of the supported version of AppleShare, those files will be handled
       according to the properties of AppleShare.

       -r     No intelligent file-processing is performed; all files  named  are  assumed  to  be
	      plain  resource  files,  and  are hexified as if they were MacIntosh resource files
	      with creator "RSED" and type "RSRC", unless another creator and/or type are  speci-
	      fied.

       -d     No  intelligent  file-processing	is  performed;	all files named are assumed to be
	      plain data files, and are hexified as if they were MacIntosh data files  with  cre-
	      ator "MACA" and type "TEXT", unless another creator and/or type are specified.

       -u     As -d, but the codes for CR and LF are interchanged.

       -U     Is a synonym for -u.

       -c creator
	      Defines the creator name to be used if one of the previous options is specified.

       -t type
	      Defines the type name to be used if one of the previous options is specified.

       -R     Do not use run-length encoding during the conversion.  This option may speed up the
	      encoding a bit, but it is merely a historical artifact.

       -l     List every file and directory processed.

       -i     Do not output files, give information only (implies -l.)

       -q     Ask the user for every file/directory whether it should be visited (implies -l.)

       -V     Gives the patchlevel of the program, and	other  information.   Other  options  are
	      ignored and the program quits immediately.

       -H     Give  short  information about the options.  Other options are ignored and the pro-
	      gram quits immediately.

BUGS
       As this is a beta release, there may still be some problems.
