       hexbin - Macintosh file de-binhexer

       hexbin [ - options ] [ files ]

       hexbin  takes  the  text files specified in files (or standard input if none is specified)
       and converts them subject to the options specified.

       In the absence of any options, hexbin takes the specified files and silently converts them
       into  MacBinary	format, giving the output files ".bin" extensions and placing them in the
       current working directory.

       -3     Write files in fork format (.info, .data and .rsrc files.)

       -f     As -3, but empty data and rsrc files are not created.

       -r     Write resource forks only (.rsrc files.)

       -d     Write data forks only (.data files.)

       -u     As -d, but the codes for CR and LF are  interchanged,  the  filename  extension  is

       -U     As -u, but there is no filename extension.

       -a     Write files in AppleShare format.  This option is only valid if the program is com-
	      piled with support for some form of AppleShare.  The current directory  must  be	a
	      valid AppleShare folder.

       -s     Write extracted files to standard output in MacBinary format.

       -l     List every file extracted (and every directory/folder created etc.)

       -v     Like -l, but more verbose.  When this option is specified all lines skipped because
	      they do not belong to the hexified format are listed (implies -l.)

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

       -c     Do not check whether the hexified lines have equal size.	 Normally  the	hexifiers
	      gives text files with equal length line size, hexbin uses this in its heuristics to
	      determine whether a line must be skipped.  There are however hexified files that do
	      not conform to that pattern.  If this option is specified hexbin will in general be
	      unable to detect whether a line is garbage or  not,  so  you  have  to  remove  the
	      garbage by hand.

       -n name
	      Gives  the  Unix	base  file name for the converted files.  For files hexified with
	      BinHex 4.0 or compatible hexifiers this flag is not needed; hexbin  will	determine
	      the  Unix file name based on the Mac file name.  For files in dl, hex or hcx format
	      this parameter may be needed as these formats do	not  include  the  Mac	filename.
	      Normally	hexbin will in those cases base the Unix file name on the text file name,
	      but that can be overruled with this parameter.

       -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.

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