Compiler - Binary


binary files in the context of a compiler are executable file created by the compiler targeting a run-time (execution) environment.

They are called binary files because they contain binary data that can be interpreted by the CPU (or a virtual CPU).

They are the output of a compiler.



Plain binary file is a file that can run directly on the CPU. Same as Instruction Set - Object Code (Machine Code) ?
