One option is to read the file in Fortran (using the same compiler), and 
call Fortran from python using f2py. If you can write the file in 
Fortran, you can read the file in Fortran.

Another option to find out how the binary data is stored by Fortran 
(experimenting, hex editor, etc) and read them using numpy.fromfile. You 
can also use or numpy.memmap with a recarray.
