Use the binfile keyword to work with binary files.

Comments:

The binfile scheme indicates a binary file which is located on the user's system. The file is specified by either a full path starting with "/", or a relative path starting from the defaultFolder.

A URL container can be used anywhere another container type is used.

When you put data into a binfile URL or get data from it, Revolution does not translate end-of-line markers (ASCII 10 and ASCII 13) between the current platform's standard and Revolution's internal standard of a linefeed. This ensures that binary data, which may contain such characters, is not accidentally corrupted.

If you are working with text data (such as text in fields), use the file URL scheme instead.
