I would like to read a specific byte from a file within a zip archive without extracting the whole file, is this possible?
        Dim br As BinaryReader = New BinaryReader(ms)
        Dim lngStartPos As Long = 3756
        br.BaseStream.Seek(lngStartPos, SeekOrigin.Begin)
        Dim a As Byte = br.ReadByte()
        Dim b As Byte = br.ReadByte()
        Dim c As Integer = b * 256 + a
