FILE AND BINARY FORMAT

Hi all,
   I need to write data into my file in binary format directly. Like, say i need to write "Hello" into my file and while writing , it should be in binary format. I can't use fopen mode as "wb+" as it  can just convert into to binary format  while writing it into the file. But, i want my "hello" string to be in binary format when i use fprintf for "hello".Can somebody help me with this.Is there any single step to get it done?

hi,
IF ur using CFile of MFC, The following mode allows u to create a binary file
InFile.Open(FilePath, CFile::modeRead | CFile::typeBinary);
U need to store each record in a structure and write the structure into a binary file.
with warm regards,
