Off hand the only thing I think of right now is to write a program to
convert this binary file into ASCII. In this case, skip the fwrite
altogether and use "set gxout print" to create ASCII directly from GrADS;
look at the user guide for instructions.

If you are an experienced C programmer, another possibility is look for a C
library that writes in Excel binary format and write a conversion utility.
This can also be done in Python using PyGrADS and the python excel tools.
 However, I've never done it myself (I do not use excel).
