What is a macbin file and how do I open a macbin file?

MACBIN files are called Macbinary Encoded Files because they are compressed files encoded and saved in a binary format. The MACBIN file extension was developed by Apple and is categorized as data files. The MACBIN format consists of a finder header, a resource fork, and a data fork. MACBIN files are supported by various MACBinary formats such as MacBinary II and MacBinary III. MACBIN files are useful when it comes to sending Macintosh files to the internet. The .bin extension is also seen with MACBIN files. These files can also be opened using the Smith Micro StuffIt Deluxe 2011 and Smith Micro StuffIt Deluxe 2010 applications. Smith Micro StuffIt Deluxe is a program that allows users to compress files, secure them as well as send them and share them to others. Since MACIB files are compressed files, they play a big role in successfully transferring files to another disk for backups or for sharing them to other through email.
