BinaryXtra for Macromedia Director
BinaryXtra implements a binary Lingo variable, which can hold any binary data.
The main goal of BinaryXtra is to allow ADOxtra to handle binary data like BLOB database fields. If the xtra is present ADOxtra will use it indirectly when accessing BLOB data.
BinaryXtra can be used on its own, since it capable to allocate a new empty binary data object and fill it like an array, initialize it with a file contents, or cast member's media, or cast member's picture. Then binary contents may be written to a file or assigned to a member as its media or picture.
VbScriptXtra (v2) has new binary wrapper inside. It provides even more useful functionality. Binary wrapper of VbScriptXtra is Free.
