How can I change their mode to binary?

I'm writing a ``filter'' for binary files, but stdin and stdout are
preopened as text streams. How can I change their mode to binary?





There is no standard way to do this. On Unix-like systems, there is no text/binary
distinction, so there is no need to change the mode. Some MS-DOS compilers supply
a setmode call. Otherwise, you're on your own.
