BXY file extension - NuFX archive within a Binary II envelope

What is bxy file? How to open bxy files?

File type specification:

Binary file type icon Binary file type

BXY is the format currently required for new uploads to the Apple II libraries of GEnie and Compuserve. These files can be created and unpacked with ShrinkIt.

Although this "envelope within an envelope" format may seem redundant, it has several advantages. Ideally, the Binary II envelope will be entirely "transparent" to end users - it will be automatically added by telecommunications software during uploading, and automatically removed during downloading

As more telecommunications programs come to support automatic Binary II packing and unpacking, this ideal will be increasingly realized. Thus, if your telecommunications software supports automatic Binary II unpacking during downloading, you can turn this option on when downloading a .BXY file. Doing this will give you a downloaded file which is a "bare" NuFX archive.

Thanks to the Binary II envelope, this file will automatically be given the correct name and filetype.

This bxy file type entry was marked as obsolete and no longer supported file format.

This type of file is no longer actively used and is most likely obsolete. This is typically the case for system files in old operating systems, file types from long discontinued software, or previous versions of certain file types (like documents, projects etc.) that were replaced in higher versions of their original programs.

How to convert:

As far as we know, this .bxy file type can't be converted to any other file format. This is usually the case of system, configuration, temporary, or data files containing data exclusive to only one software and used for its own purposes. Also some proprietary or closed file formats cannot be converted to more common file types in order to protect the intellectual property of the developer, which is for example the case of some DRM-protected multimedia files.
