 MyFileStream.Read(Buffer, 0, (int)FileSize);
 Response.Write("<b>File Contents: </b>");

FileStream myFileStream;
long fileSize;

myFileStream = new FileStream("sometext.txt", FileMode.Open);
fileSize = myFileStream.get_Length();

ubyte buffer[] = new ubyte[(int)(fileSize)];
myFileStream.Read(buffer, 0, (int)(fileSize));
