having two parts; of or pertaining to a numbering system based on two digits; of or pertaining to the method of coding information in computers (Computers)
something made up of two parts
The prime religious and mystical meaning in the science of numeration is finite completion, involving defined limits, and hence standing in sharp contrast to the indefiniteness associated with the nonfinite or cosmic; and therefore Pythagoras and his school looked upon two as beginning the series of even numbers, each one signifying a completion or a balance, suggesting the material worlds as contrasted with the spiritual. The binary was regarded as "the origin of differentiation, hence of contrasts, discord, or matter, the beginning of evil. . . . With the early Pythagoreans, however, the duad was that imperfect state into which the first manifested being fell when it got detached from the Monad. It was the point from which the two roads -- the Good and the Evil -- bifurcated. All that which was double-faced or false was called by them 'binary' " (SD 2:574-5). It was represented geometrically as a line, because two is produced by the first motion from indivisible spiritual nature: the line also forms the tie or union between two points.

A system for encoded digital information using two components: 0 and 1.
Binary data type
A data type that stores fixed-length binary data. The maximum length is 255 bytes.
Binary means the use of only two values,0 and 1,in encoding data.All digital computers primarly use some form of binary encoding,such as 8 ,16,32 binary digits at a time.Characters that you see on screen or type with your keyboard are normally encoded with 8 binary digits.For example the binary value for the letter A is 01000001.
Binary is a two-digit (Base-2) numerical system, which computers use to store data and compute functions. The reason computers use the binary system is because digital switches inside the computer can only be set to either on or off, which can be easily represented by a 1 or 0. Though the binary system consists of only 0's and 1's, the two digits can be used to represent any number. For example, 0 in binary represents 0, 1 represents 1 (2^0), 10 represents 2 (2^1), 11 represents 3 (2^1 + 2^0), 100 represents 4 (2^2), 101 represents 5 (2^2 + 2^0), 110 represents 6 (2^2 + 2^1), 111 represents 7 (2^2 + 2^1 + 2^0), 1000 represents 8 (2^3), etc.

1. a system of two stars that revolve around each other under their mutual gravitation
(synonym) binary star, double star
1. of or pertaining to a number system have 2 as its base; "a binary digit"
(pertainym) binary numeration system, pure binary numeration system, binary number system, binary system
2. consisting of two (units or components or elements or terms) or based on two; "a binary star is a system in which two stars revolve around each other"; "a binary compound"; "the binary number system has two as its base"
Of or based on the number two or the binary numeration system (base 2). Digital computers use this form of numbering because the values of 0 and 1 can easily be represented by an open or closed switch.
A computer file in a compressed and/or unreadable form (e.g., a program or a computer image file). Contrast with ASCII text.
- Static variable in class java.sql.Types
public static final int BINARY
A digital numbering system based on two where data is expressed as combinations of "0"s and "1"s). Bit - A single unit of digital information expressed as a "0" or "1".
the base 2 numbers system. All numbers are represented as a string of ones and zeros. The number system used by digital computers. A one is represented by a voltage and a zero by the absence of a voltage. In 4 bit binary the numbers 0, 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, would be represented by 0000, 0001, 0010, 0011, 0100, 0101 respectively.
having two forms, or two parts
That which is constituted of two figures, things, or parts; two; duality.
Compounded or consisting of two things or parts; characterized by two (things).
dah-, dahik; dah-krus-, dah-krusik
Pertaining to a selection, choice, or condition that has two possible different values or states. 2.
Pertaining to a fixed radix numeration system that has a radix of 2.
A numbering system involving the use of '1' and '0' eg. 11001001
A numbering system with only two values: 0 (zero) and 1 (one).
Two-valued. A binary relation states how two kinds of elements are linked, e.g., "is married to", "is talking with", "is larger than", "precedes" . A binary alphabet contains two kinds of characters, e.g., "0" and "1", "yes" and "no." A distinction, e.g. between "inside" and "outside", is a binary operation. Binary contrasts with unary = one-valued, ternary = three-valued, etc. (krippendorff )
The Base 2 numbering system that has a very high use in PC technology. 10 in Binary is equivalent to 2 in decimal.
