Hi Koen,

The format is explained in detail on this page I happened to  
encounter: http://www.mekentosj.com/enzymex
I copied the relevant part below:

Another sequence format?
Not really. The files EnzymeX creates look like normal files, but  
right-click and open their contents and you will see that they  
consist of a simple FASTA file and a file in which EnzymeX stores its  
preferences. Send a file to someone who doesn't have EnzymeX or to a  
Windows user and they will simply see a folder with a FASTA file. No  
problem! If you have any questions about the exDNA file "format",  
don't hesitate to contact us.

Hope that helps..

Ps. The binary file reading is being tested on an intel based mac as  
we speak, turned out that I had it done already but mixed up Big  
(PPC) and Little (Endian) in my first attempt to fix the problem
