Visual Basic equivalent "Get" keyword in C#

     I'm looking for the VB 6 equivalent "GET" in C#.

    I have a DAT file in binary format."
    I can read the file using "BinaryReader class - Read...() Method" but the problem is I need a proper chunk of data to be read.

    For example VB 6 uses the below code to read a DAT File,

    Input is a DAT File 

    intBinaryFile = FreeFile
    Open ""c:\termrate.dat" For Binary As intBinaryFile
    Get #intBinaryFile, , TermRateArray()
    Close #intBinaryFile

    I want an equivalent code in C# to achieve the same output.

    Kindly advice.

    with regards,
    Krish TS
