It seems you missunderstood me with that 0x01 character. In the Document
stream of a word file you can find all the text (starting from
fib.fcMin). In these text data, the pictures are marked by a 0x01

The trick there is that all 0x01 aren't necessary pictures: it also need
the fcPicLoc SPRM (see the Table stream and the CHP plex). The fcPicLoc
then provides the offset to the beginning of the PICF structure in the
data stream.

I am too lazy to make a code snippet, but this shouldn't be too hard to
get all the pictures from a doc file using HWPFDocument...
