Doing so isn't very wise because it can easily break by the addition, removal, or changing of position of an element. Every C book I've read has also pointed out that doing so is a bad idea.

Because it is a bad idea (and generally mis-used) the framework doesn't support it in the form you are looking for. The alternative is to use the Serialization classes, but since you have an existing format to follow those won't work for you.

The next best thing is to just read the data in and interpret it as you go. I'm not aware of how Delphi/Pascal format binary data so I can't comment on any differences. But if memory serves Pascal uses length-prefixed strings instead of null-terminated strings. This could potentially be one problem you'll encounter.

I hope that gives you some direction on where you should go from here.

At Jethro Tull's August 28, 2003 concert Ian Anderson mentioned that the group would be performing a medley of title tracks. The songs were "Songs from the Wood", "Too Old to Rock and Roll; Too Young to Die"; and from the Heavy Horses album, "Stairway to Heaven"
