The manual says:
The mode string may also have a b at the end, which is needed in some systems to open the file in binary mode. This string is exactlty what is used in the standard C function fopen.
In any case, how do I open a file in binary and write binary data to it? (I don''t want my numbers converted to strings, as that's what seems to be happening)
