The file is a binary file (there's no such thing as a hex file). This means the data is in computer-readable form, not human-readable. You will have to
1) open the file in binary mode
2) read the data into integers, floats, and other binary variables
3) understand what you are reading -- the format of the file. To get any real info out of it, you need to know what type of data you are reading which means you need a 'roadmap' of the file. Ask whoever created the file for the information.
