Installing BINARY files in Linux

A binary file (commonly, but not necessarily, with the extension .bin) is a computer file which may contain any type of data, encoded in binary form for computer storage and processing purposes. Typically a binary file (.bin) is compiled computer programs.

In Linux you might have come across binary files. We can install these files after changing it's permissions.Run the following command to change the permission:

chmod +x filename.bin

 
Start the installation process or run .bin file.Type the following command:

chmod +x application.bin 

./application.bin
 
Thus your application will get installed on tour system.
