How would I covert the following vb.net code to asp code in order to create a binary file.              

Dim fs2 As New FileStream("c:\test.etu", FileMode.Create, FileAccess.Write)
            Dim sw As New BinaryWriter(fs2, System.Text.Encoding.Default)
            sw.Seek(0, SeekOrigin.End)
            sw.Write(CShort(101))
            sw.Write(CByte(4))
            sw.Write(CChar("f"))
            sw.Write(CChar("g"))
            sw.Write(CChar("h"))
            sw.Write(CChar("i"))
            sw.Write(CShort(100))
            sw.Write(CByte(4))
            sw.Write(CChar("g"))
            sw.Write(CChar("h"))
            sw.Write(CChar("j"))
            sw.Write(CChar("k"))
            sw.Write(CByte(255))
            sw.Write(CByte(255))  
            sw.Close()
            fs2.Close()

I tried the following but it would only write the "4" as text.  Plus im not sure the syntaxt for CShort in asp.
<%
 'Create an instance of the FSO
Set objFSO = Server.CreateObject("Scripting.FileSystemObject")
'Create the object and the binary file to write to
Set objBinaryFile = objFSO.CreateTextFile(Server.MapPath("test.etu"))
'Write the information to the file
objBinaryFile.Write (cbyte("4"))
'Close the file
objBinaryFile.Close
'Clean up
Set objFSO = Nothing
%>
