ok! That's exactlly what I was looking for, thank you.

Awesome!  The thoughts banging around in my head right now are that some
> sort of mini-language that encapsulates the content of the declarations and
> the write statements should allow one to tease out exactly which struct call
> will unpack the right information.  f2py has some fortran parsing
> capabilities, so you might be able to use the fortran itself as the
> mini-language.  Something like
>
> spec = fortranfile.OutputSpecification(\
> """real(4),dimension(2,5):: ux,uy
> write(11) ux,uy""")
> ux, uy = fortranfile.FortranFile('uxuyp.bin').readSpec(spec)
>

whouhou, I'm really enthusiastic, I love this solution!!! I begin to code
it... I'll give news around 1 june, (somethings to finish before).

One more time, thanks for this help!

best,

David
