binary file question

P: n/a
If I save data in a binary format in C#, can I read the file back in C++ ?

I have some data in XLS workbooks. I want to use Automation to extract
the data. The application that will use the data is written in C++, and
expects the data to be in a particular format. I want to know if my plan
of attack is feasible.

As long as you write it out in the expected format, there isn't any reason
it wouldn't work. It's just data.

Of course , it's just a collection of bytes, anybody can read it. Understand
it is a complete different thing though

As long as both ends (the writer & the reader) "speak" the same format I
don't see any problem
