  Option - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
In finance, an option is a contract whereby one party (the holder or buyer) has the right but not the obligation to exercise a feature of the contract (the option) on or before a future date (the exercise date or expiry).
Most often the term "option" refers to a type of derivative which gives the holder of the option the right but not the obligation to purchase (a "call option") or sell (a "put option") a specified amount of a security within a specified time span.
The key argument is that traders could risklessly hedge a long options position with a short position in the stock and continuously adjust the hedge ratio (the delta value -- one of the option sensitivities known as "greeks") as needed.

 Binary option - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
A binary option is a type of option where the payoff is either some fixed amount of some asset or nothing at all.
The two main types of binary options are the cash-or-nothing binary option and the asset-or-nothing binary option.
Thus, the options are binary in nature because there are only two possible outcomes.

 Put option - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
A put option (sometimes simply called a "put") is a financial contract between two parties, the buyer and the seller of the option.
However, options are traded on many other assets: financial - such as interest rates (see interest rate floor) - and physical, such as gold or crude oil.
In general, the buyer of a put option expects the price of stock to fall significantly, but does not want to sell the stock short because that could result in large losses if the stock does go up anyway.

The binary Option The binary option is indicated with the attribute option string "binary" in an attribute description.
Where the binary option is present in an attribute description the associated attribute values or assertion values MUST be BER encoded (otherwise the values are encoded according to the LDAP-specific encoding [SYNTAX] for the attribute's syntax).
Attributes of a syntax with the binary transfer requirement, if returned, SHALL be returned in the binary form, i.e., with the binary option in the attribute description and the associated attribute values BER encoded, regardless of whether the binary option was present in the request (for the attribute or for one of its supertypes).

 RFC 856 (rfc856) - Telnet Binary Transmission
If the connection is not already being operated in binary transmission mode, the sender of this command REFUSES to begin transmitting characters which are to be interpreted as binary characters by the receiver of the data (i.e., the sender of the data demands to continue transmitting characters in its present mode).
Description of the Option With the binary transmission option in effect, the receiver should interpret characters received from the transmitter which are not preceded with IAC as 8 bit binary data, with the exception of IAC followed by IAC which stands for the 8 bit binary data with the decimal value 255.
Implementation of the binary transmission option, as is the case with implementations of all other TELNET options, must follow the loop preventing rules given in the General Considerations section of the TELNET Protocol Specification.

If the "-f" option is used with the "-c" option, the output file is opened as a binary file and the information requested using the command line options will be written to the output file in binary form.
If this option is used without the "-r" option, DUMPSEGY will prompt the user for a data trace number, process that trace, and output all information to the specified file, and again prompt the user until a 0 (zero) is entered to exit the program.
The /B option is necessary to process binary format files and ignore the control-Z end of file marker in all but the last of the files to be concatenated.

The binary option was not included in the revised LDAP technical specification for a variety of reasons including implementation inconsistencies.
Note that this is a property of the syntaxes themselves, and not a property of the binary option.
If the binary option is present in at least one, but not all, of these attribute descriptions then the effect of the request with respect to binary transfer is implementation defined.

 Info: (diff) Binary
Binary Files and Forcing Text Comparisons ========================================= If `diff' thinks that either of the two files it is comparing is binary (a non-text file), it normally treats that pair of files much as if the summary output format had been selected (Brief), and reports only that the binary files are different.
`diff' determines whether a file is text or binary by checking the first few bytes in the file; the exact number of bytes is system dependent, but it is typically several thousand.
Differing binary files are considered to cause trouble because the resulting `diff' output does not capture all the differences.

This option has no hardcoded purpose, but the default elvis.arf, elvis.bwf, and elvis.awf scripts use it store the modification time of a file (as detected by the time() function), and detect whether the file has been modified by some other program while you were editing it in Elvis.
The compiled-in default is "binary" or "text", depending on the binary option, but the standard elvis.brf file may change "text" to a file-dependent value via the fileeol() function.
The modeline option is false by default, and modelines is 5.

 Global Derivatives Binary / Digital Options
European Asset-or-Nothing binaries are similar to cash-or-nothing binaries, with the exception that asset binaries, at expiry, will payout either 0 or the asset - compared to cash binaries, where the payout is either 0 or a prescribed cash amount.
Wystup, Schmock and Shreve (2001) consider a binary option under leveraged constraints in order to replicate a portfolio to produce pricing formulas that give better results than the Black-Scholes type equations which tend to undervalue binary options because of difficulties associated with hedging.
They extend basic results of binary options to the case of one-touch or American binary options under leverage constraints and even to cases where binary options are combined with barriers to form binary barriers.

 binopt
One of its primary products is the binary option, also known as an “event option”, which allows the hedger/investor to bet on the occurrence or non-occurrence of an event.
The option is the right (not the obligation) to buy the underlying asset (if a Call option) or sell the underlying asset (if a Put option) at a specified price, called the strike price.
In a binary option, the underlying asset can be an event (So and So is elected President) or a price point being attained (oil prices will reach $60 per barrel, or the Dow will fall to 9000).

When the option is disabled, the REF sends a data string to the IUT to determine whether the IUT is still remotely echoing.

If the IUT agrees to enable the Binary option, the IUT sends a data string of non-printable ASCII characters, including one TELNET IAC(377), to the REF; When the option is disabled, the IUT sends the same data string to the IUT.
