|(operating system)||fat binary - An executable file containing code for more
than one CPU. The correct code is selected automatically at
run time. This is convenient for distributing software and
sharing it between multiple platforms.|
NEXTSTEP supports fat binaries, e.g. for Motorola 68000, Intel 80486 and SPARC ("triple fat"). Mac OS supports fat binaries for both 680x0 and PowerPC native code.
