MIME provides a general-purpose type for exchange of pure untyped
binary data. Such data may or may not be usable in any given
circumstance; no other information about the data is available. Various
PMDF channels provide mechanisms for dealing with such data that may or
may not be appropriate. The
noconvert_octet_stream keywords control these mechanisms;
if the former is specified conversions are performed and if the latter
is specified no conversions are performed. The latter keyword is the
default for all channels.
Optional channel-specific conversions available include:
foreignkeyword, Section 126.96.36.199.
