what u can do is open the file in binary mode and read it using fread...
hence u will be able to retrieve everything...

the problem u have is because of characters which are non ASCII...like german characters that u r talking about comes in UNICODE character set...so if u have a corresponding function which can read UNICODE characters then ur job is done..

nd even in the case when u use fread to read the complete file..u won't be really use the character until u have a char which is more than one byte long...!
