XBIN (eXtended BIN) is a character graphics format. Its purpose is similar to that of ANSI Art. It was designed to be a successor to BIN format. It uses a specialized RLE compression algorithm.

It is closely tied to the capabilities of the text modes of VGA graphics cards. The font can be customized. Though limited to 16 colors, a custom palette can be used.
