I need a program that will find a specific string in a binary file, and then create an output stream to display the lines containing the string in another binary file.

You mean you want a program to find a sequence of bytes in a binary file? (The rest of the post I didn't understand because it was ambiguous.)

it's like a list of fields containing data. The program must be able to locate (as paul said) a sequence of bytes) then opens an output stream, copies the fields (in this case, lines) containing the "findByte" data into a new output binary file.

Then the logic is the same as for text files. Read a "line", see if it contains the desired sequence of bytes, and if it does then write the "line" to the output file. Repeat until end of file.
