What is a BHX file?

A .BHX file is a BinHex encoded file.

BinHex is short for "binary-to-hexadecimal" and was once a common format to convert a file from its binary form to an ASCII text file. BinHex'ed files take up more space than the original files but are less likely to be corrupted when transferred between different computer systems.

The files need to be decoded back to their original format before they can be used by the receiver.
