Hi all,

What is an easy way to read a specific byte offset of a file?  Right
now I'm going through and using the .getc function until I get to the
specific offset I need.  This is very tedious because I just have a
list of .getc calls.  THere must be an easier way to do this?

Right now I'm doing this in order to get to 4th byte in file:
-------------------------------
a = File.open("example.dat")
a.getc
a.getc
a.getc
a.getc 
byte_4 = a.getc
a.close
-------------------------------
Thanks,
