A friend e-mailed their resume to me as a .bin file and asked me to print it for them. However, I cannot open it... What program should I use?
Thank you!

This sounds like a binary file, from the extension ... but I may be wrong! Some text editors might open it, but you'd lose the formatting.

I'd ask them what they created it with, and if they can save it in another format, such as .doc (for word processing programs).
