Notes about the HQX file extension:



Incorrect file associations could be the result of underlying issues within your PC system. As such it is highly recommended to scan your PC for invalid registry entries, unused processes and other unfavourable system settings to identify slowdown issues.

The HQX file type is primarily associated with 'Macintosh BinHex 4 Compressed Archive'.

The BinHex format was created to satisfy two specific needs: To allow transferring binary files sent on the Internet and to bundle in a single container both forks composing a Macintosh file.

The author, Yves Lempereur, also added a compression function, of the RLE type, to avoid sending repetitive sequences of identical characters.

Typically lower case on *nix systems.
