22.2.2. Input from Binary Streams

Common Lisp currently specifies only a very simple facility for binary input: the reading of a single byte as an integer.

read-byte binary-input-stream &optional eof-error-p eof-value

read-byte reads one byte from the binary-input-stream and returns it in the form of an integer.
