Bit - Binary Data (Structure)

Cpu Moore Law Transistor


Binary Data is a computer file that contains binary data (0 or 1)

Binary data may be described:


Machine code

Machine code is binary data, a long string of 0 and 1 which correspond to instructions the processor understands. It can be seen as the output of a compiler. See for instance: the bin format output of the nasm assembler.

All data are stored as binary data (in file or other storage system)


To text

To represent binary data in printable characters, you need to use a map that

The map can be:

Binary File

A binary file is regular file that does not contain textual data but another another format that is defined at the bit level. If the format is unknown, the term used is binary data bit
