convert binary to float

I have tried and tried...
I'd like to read in a binary file, convert it's 4 byte values into
floats, and then save as a .txt file.
This works from the command line (import struct);
In : f = open("test2.pc0", "rb")
In : tagData = f.read(4)
In : tagData
I can then do the following in order to convert it to a float:
In : struct.unpack("f", "\x00\x00\xc0@")
But when I run the same code from my .py file:
f = open("test2.pc0", "rb")
tagData = f.read(4)
I get this (ASCII??):
I only know how to work with '\x00\x00\xc0@'.
I don't understand why the output isn't the same. I need a solution
that will allow me to convert my binary file into floats. Am I close?
Can anyone point me in the right direction?
