I have a file format that ends in a 4-byte (int32) number. I would
like to read this value in python on a WinXP machine with something
fname = 'somefile'
f = open(fname, 'rb')
offset = f.read()
... but this doesn't seem to work. The value that Python returns is:
but I know from similar code in Matlab that the correct sequence is:
64 25 1 0
Can someone point out my error?
