Description

• 

The FileTools[Binary] subpackage is a collection of binary file manipulation commands.  These commands allow the creation, reading, and writing of files using binary format.

• 

Currently, only integer and floating-point numbers can be written to and read from files using these functions.

• 

Binary files represent data using 1, 2, 4, or 8 byte representations of integers and 4 or 8 byte representations of floats.  In the file, the byte ordering is always network order ( big endian ).

• 

Each command in the FileTools[Binary] subpackage can be accessed by using either the long form or the short form of the command name in the command calling sequence.

  

As the underlying implementation of the FileTools[Binary] subpackage is a module, it is also possible to use the form FileTools[Binary]:-command to access a command from the package. For more information,  see Module Members.
