What is Tiny Transfer (BinHex .hqx and file transfer tool)?

Tiny Transfer converts files to/from BinHex format. It records additional information beyond standard BinHex, such as the Finder comment and file dates. So, it preserves more of the original file information while remaining compatible with the BinHex file format. This is a better choice for archiving and uploading to internet repositories.

It is faster than BinHex and StuffIt, and runs on more Macs (Mac 128 through Mac G3) and Mac OSs (System 1 to System 9) than StuffIt.

Additionally, Tiny Transfer let's you send files back and forth between two Macs with just a serial cable. This is much more convenient than shutting down, removing an SD card, putting the SD card in the host machine, opening the drive image in an emulator, and so on.

Tiny Transfer synchronizes the clock if connected to an accurate computer. This is useful when the PRAM battery is removed or dead.

Lastly, you can copy and paste files from an emulator to the host machine. Tiny Transfer converts to/from BinHex format through the clipboard.
