It would be good to include a description of what "binary-safe" means in PHP in the documentation along with some examples of differences between how functions would perform if they were and if they were not binary-safe.

This would be helpful to users like myself who are not experienced with those concepts.

the PHP-Manual is not the place to explain fundamental concepts. You can, for example, search the web to get the answer what binary-safe means.
There is nothing php-specific about binary-safe.

That said, don't expect the PHP-Manual to be the place to get explanations what common terms mean ;-)
