It is convenient to be able to store binary files on a mainframe computer. The mainframe computer can be used as a bulletin board that may be accessed by anyone owning a personal computer. Files may be left on this bulletin board and downloaded by anybody with legal access to the mainframe. Because of the design of the IBM mainframe, it has not been possible to download binary files. An IBM's communication processor strips off the eighth bit of each incoming byte. This renders binary files meaningless, and has precluded the use of IBM mainframes as a bulletin board.
