Is it possible to manipulate a binary file on the server with PHP?

For example, take an executable, seek to byte 1000, overwrite the next 6 bytes with new data, and save the modifed file?

PHP has binary safe file functions, binary operators and with fseek you can seek to a byte in a file so I'd say it's possible.
