     applesingle, binhex, macbinary — encode and decode files

     <tool> probe file ...
     <tool> [decode] [-c] [-fv] [-C dir] [-o outfile] [file ...]
     <tool> -h | -V

     applesingle encode [-cfv] [-s suf] [-C dir] [-o outfile] file ...
     binhex encode [-R] [-cfv] [-s suf] [-C dir] [-o outfile] file ...
     macbinary encode [-t 1-3] [-cfv] [-s suf] [-C dir] [-o outfile] file ...

     applesingle, binhex, macbinary are implemented as a single tool with mul‐
     tiple names.  All invocations support the three verbs encode, decode, and

     If multiple files are passed to probe, the exit status will be non-zero
     only if all files contain data in the specified encoding.

     -f, --force
	      perform the operation even if the output file already exists

     -h, --help
	      display version and usage, then quit

     -v, --verbose
	      be verbose

     -V, --version
	      display version, then quit

     -c, --pipe, --from-stdin, --to-stdout
	      For decode, read encoded data from the standand input.  For
	      encode, write encoded data to the standard output.  Currently,
	      "plain" data must be written to and from specified filenames
	      (see also mount_fdesc(8)).

     -C, --directory dir
	      create output files in dir

     -o, --rename name
	      Use name for output, overriding any stored or default name.  For
	      encode, the appropriate suffix will be added to name.  -o
	      implies only one file to be encoded or decoded.

     -s, --suffix .suf
	      override the default suffix for the given encoding

     -R, --no-runlength-encoding
	      don't use BinHex runlength compression when encoding

     -t, --type 1-3
	      Specify MacBinary encoding type.	Type 1 is undesirable because
	      it has neither a checksum nor a signature and is thus difficult
	      to recognize.

     In general, the tool returns a non-zero exit status if it fails.
