Re: How do I read/write binary image data? (fwd)

Reading or writing large binary files with Mathematica is 
hopeless without the MathLink package FastBinaryFiles 
written by Todd Gayley and available from Wolfram for free 
from their MathSource web site.  Basically this is a C library.

It is documented in the Mathematical Journal Vol4 Issue 2, 
Spring 1994, p. 44.  

I have no clue why this package isn't included in the released 
software.

Hope this helps.
