public function get_integer32(integer fh)

An atom, between -1 and power(2,32)-1, made of the bytes that could be read from the file. When an end of file is encountered, it returns -1.

Example 1:

fn = open("temp", "rb")  -- an existing file 
atom file_type_code 
file_type_code = get_integer32(fn)
