is equivalent to the --binary-files=without-match option.

Sure, thats supposed to tell me it will shut that #)^(&^$ noise off? I've 
been reading english for about 79 years now. That my friend is Swahili, 
and I don't make a milligram of sense out of THAT.  Sure, it looks like 
english, even reads in common popular english words, but What the hell 
does it mean?  It doesn't say a thing about turning off the unwanted 
noise.
