HQXer allows you to decode and encode BinHex archives in the most efficient way ever possible. Before, working with BinHex files required either excessive effort or a lot of waiting, and always involved a hassle. Now, that’s all changed.

Distribution: HQXer is freeware, meaning that you can copy it freely among your friends. Just follow that simple rules, so that everyone can enjoy HQXer.
Please don’t distribute HQXer without this accompanying documentation file! Also, do not distribute modified versions of HQXer. HQXer or any such derivations of HQXer may not be sold for profit or given away as any type of incentive without the author’s express permission.

Excerpt from the doc file

Architecture: 68k

You can place the HQXer program wherever you want. System 6.0.7 is required, and System 7.0 (or higher) is recommended. If your System file is below version 6.0.7, HQXer will not be able to start, and will quit immediately.

It's a good example of what not to do, if you're a shareware author...

Ah, yes, that's annoying. I've opened it directly in Mac OS X. May be the file was converted by the author. Tongue
Didn't see the confusion when copying/paste the text. Well, the author get drunk Drunk ?
Hope he was not when creating its software... Facepalm Cheers! Beer

Crazy password protected (WordPerfect v2) documentation included with this. You were able to view it OK tho' MacTouch?

I dragged it onto BBEdit lite to view.

It looks like the author does not understand the meaning of "freeware" compared to "free to distribute" software.
It is/was a $10 shareware Wink
