In addition, Adam:
4) do you mean that you:
    a) extracted a bit-string;  or
    b) extracted human-readable data
5) if b), could you provide some sample data.
    (Naturally you'd want to avoid providing data with security
    implications;  so partial data or data that is, shall we say,
    'lightly falsified but indicative' might be best)

Thanks  ...  Roger
