...and I'm not talking about weight.

My familiarity with "BLOB" is very minimal (at best), but from what I do understand, it's an approach MySQL was gifted with which enables it to store practically anything in a binary format. Is this accurate?

Anyway, I have a bunch of these guys in my database that need to be converted back into their original formats. Honestly, I think I'm hosed and if that's the case, I'll survive, but it would be splendid if there was some sort of script that some of you may know of that can do this conversion for me.

Does anyone know of a script that can take BLOB content and re-convert it back to whatever original formats the information may have been in?
