Binary vs non-binary

can someone explain me the difference in opening a file in binary mode
and opening it not in binary mode? And when is some file defined to be
binary, when it contains an ASCII 0? If so, I understand you need to say
it's binary in C, but if Python doesn't store it strings with an ASCII 0
on the end, why is there any difference?
