Reading binary .cds files (ClientDataSet Files)

I need to read in a database saved in .cds format into a programme written in VB.Net. Is anyone aware of where I can find information on how .cds files are structured/formated?

I know that there are tools available to convert .cds files to .xml/.csv/etc. but I have two programmes that run in conjunction: one written in Delphi that uses and updates the database, and the programme I'm writting which acts in a read-only function on the same database.
