15.5.60 bytfarr

bytfarr(file, dimensions [, offset=offset, /readonly, /swap])

Returns a file array that links a byte array dimensional structure with the specified dimensions to the specified file. dimensions may be an array, or up to #max_dims arguments each of which contains one dimension. The file need not exist. offset indicates the length in bytes of a file header after which the array data is to be found. It defaults to zero. Keyword /readonly disallows writing into the file through the file array. Keyword /swap indicates that the data should be byte-swapped after reading (for input only).
