    So what part of the previous answer are you having trouble with?

    File formats don't give a damn about which compiler or OS you're using.
    Once you understand that a file is simply an array of unsigned chars, you simply access the bytes you need (read the documentation for the file format), and you process them in whatever manner you want.
    If you dance barefoot on the broken glass of undefined behaviour, you've got to expect the occasional cut.
    If at first you don't succeed, try writing your phone number on the exam paper.
