Using the BUNDLE utility

The BUNDLE utility lets you put binary files into a file called a bundle, transport the bundle to another machine by one of the standard means, and extract the files from the bundle. The BUNDLE utility is designed for copying encrypted source files and r-code files, but any platform-independent binary file or ASCII file can be copied as well. It is not designed to handle executables, object files, OpenEdge RDBMSs, or other platform-dependent files.
The BUNDLE utility consists of two C language programs: bundle.c and unbundle.c. These programs are described in the following sections.
* The bundle.c program
* The unbundle.c program
