The binary file read/write package is approximately complete now.  The
only tasks remaining are:

 - compile the help to put together a compiled package
 - rewrite the Delphi code in C so it will run on other than Windows

These are both likely to take me until late August, unless the
screaming fans demand it sooner. 

You can download the package source from my web page,
