Hello

I opened a file in a read mode

a=open('c:/a.bd4', 'r')
print a
a.read()

(This .bd4 format is not known for me.)
This gives the following output :

'\x08\x00BDF\x00\xef\xcb\x830\x8d\xa1\x07\x00\xf5\x00B1\x00\x003B\xf4\x01\x00\x00U\x0f\x04\x00SUF\x00\xef\xcb\x830\xf6\xa2\x07\x00!\x00B1\xcd\xac\x8eC\x9d\x1c\x00\x00\x8c\x00&\x00SDF\x00\xef\xcb\x830\xfd\xa2\x07\x00@\x00B133\x97A\x16\r\x00\x00[]\x07\x00SUF\x00\xef\xcb\x830\n\xa3\x07\x00A\x00B1\xcd\xccvD\x8c\x00\x00\x009\xec\x00\x00SDF\x00\xef\xcb\x830\x0f\xa3\x07\x00J\x00B1\xcd\xcc\x83B\xf4\x01\x00\x00\xe6h\x01\x00BUF\x00\xf0\xcb\x830\x14\xa3\x07\x00\x9e\x01B1\x9a\x99IA>\x05\x00\x00\xf5\'\t\x00SDF\x00\xf0\xcb\x830(\xa3\x07\x00\x18\x00B1f\xa6\xd5Cx\x00\x00\x00\xd1@\x03\x00SDF\x00\xf0\xcb\x830C\xa3\x07\x00L\x00B1\xcdL\xb1C0\x01\x00\x00\xa6\xd2\x02\x00SDF\x00\xf0\xcb\x830\x8c\xa3\x07\x00t\x00B1\x00\x00(C?\x07\x00\x00\xd0B\x04\x00BDF\x00\xf0\xcb\x830\x96\xa3\x07\x00G\x01B1\x00\x00\xc8A\xb6\x03\x00\x00\xce\xa1\x0b\x00BUF\x00\xf0\xcb\x830\x94\xa1\x07\x00K\x00B1f\xe
