[net.sources.d] Explanation for Mac .hcx .hqx needed

zben@umd5 (Ben Cranston) (08/07/86)

Help!  I am able to get .hqx files Kermited down to my Mac, unBinhexed,
and unPackited as needed.  I cannot seem to get .hcx files to do anything.
Does the "c" mean there is a compression step involved?

I have a copy of the otherwise excellent "Macintosh Transfers" paper by
Chris Borton, but it only talks about .hqx files.  Is there a document
that takes an overview of the Usenet Mac support stuff?
