    Question data input in binary format

    Hi all,
    I would like to know if it is possible for scanf() function
    in C to read input from a keyboard in binary form or some
    code for conversion has to be written for conversion to
    binary format first.
    If possible to read binary input directly by scanf()
    what is the conversion specification used?

    Thanks in advance,

    ... watch out for strtol(), using base 2.
    When all else fails, read the instructions.
    If you're posting code, use code tags: [code] /* insert code here */ [/code]
