Overview of the FileTools:-Binary Subpackage
List of FileTools:-Binary Subpackage Commands
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.
The long form, FileTools:-Binary:-command, is always available. The short form can be used after loading the package.
