Reads only part of file

	My previous post said that only part of my binary file was reading in. Further investigation
shows that Mathematica stopped reading when it got to a data byte value of $1A = 26, which is an EOF value.
	Help says it will do this but does NOT say how to keep reading the file. Obviously in a
binary file any value must be readable. I am getting around this for now by changing all the 1A's to
1B's with a hex file editor (which does NOT have trouble reading past EOF's), but this is a pretty
awful solution.
	Is there a better way? Thanks for any leads.
