Hi, all,

In some binary data files, numbers are still sometimes stored in 10-byte long double format. When I read such data with BinaryRead, there is not a format that matches this type of numbers. Is there a "systematic" way of getting around it? I mean, "inside-Mathematica" solution to this problem, like a format of "Real80"... Much thanks in advance.
