  • Hex viewers are a dime a dozen on the internet, I expect every 1st year CompSci prof on the continent assigns writing one to his/her class. The precise internals of the BLOB (Binary Large OBject) you are receving will depend on your DB server, but it will comprise a size and the binary data as a byte array. Then you select your hex viewer of choice, and write the binary data to it's preferrred reading location.

    However, I don't feel motivated to do any more of your homework for you this evening.
