MacBinary II+ is a Mac OS 7 drag & drop converter for MacBinary files. It has no user interface, simply drop a MacBinary file on it and it will be decoded, drop any other file or folder on it and it will be encoded.

MacBinary is a binary (non-text) format that encodes Macintosh files so that they can be safely stored or transfered through non-Macintosh systems. MacBinary combines the two forks of a Mac file, together with the file information (Name, Creator Application, File Type, etc) into a single binary data stream, suitable for storage on non-Mac systems. This serves a similar purpose to BinHex, except that BinHex takes things even further and stores the file using only text characters, so that the file will be preserved on almost any system, and can be sent through Email or USENET News without loss or corruption.
