    Default Opening Binary Files

    Hi,<BR>I was wondering if anyone knew how to open files in binary format (like as a binary stream) to be written directly to the client. I want to write a gif directly to the browser without using an &#060;image> tag. I can get the headers, but I can&#039t open a file as anything but a text stream. Please don&#039t make me use PERL...<BR>John
