Is there a way to read binary bytes from a file? EXECIO seems to read only lines from text files, and charin() doesn't seem to be available.

EXECIO reads records into a stem. The way it reads the records depends on how the file is allocated. If the file is FB (fixed block) lrecl whatever It will read fixed length records into the stem.
