I will be receiving a binary blob of data from a UNIX process.  The blob will tell me what kind of data it is, excel, word, pdf...  I need to display the file, whatever kind it is, without writing the data to disk.  There are security issues with actually writing the file.  How can I open these files with a byte array rather than an actual file?
