4.1.2 Binary Files

When you write a case, data, or ray file, a binary file is saved by default. Binary files take up less memory than text files and can be read and written by FLUENT more quickly.

Note:   You cannot read and edit a binary file, as you can do for a text file.

To save a text file, turn off the Write Binary Files option in the Select File dialog box when you are writing the file.
