We're back after a server migration that caused effbot.org to fall over a bit harder than expected. Expect some glitches.

The binhex module

This module converts to and from the Macintosh binhex format.

Example: Using the binhex module
# File: binhex-example-1.py

import binhex
import sys

infile = "samples/sample.jpg"

binhex.binhex(infile, sys.stdout)

$ python binhex-example-1.py
(This file must be converted with BinHex 4.0)
