I think im right if i say that the binary files serve the purpose of storing serializable objects, like Hashtables, Vectors and any other objects of classes that you can create. Hope ive answered your question.

Best regards

This isn't wrong but it does not describe the full exent of a binary file.

A binary file can store anything, in fact all files are binary files (text files are just binary files whose bytes are limited to a subset of the available values).
