Return a string of bytes from a portion of a source string, without regard for multi-byte characters in a UTF8 string.  This operates on a string as a byte stream, not a character stream.


#STRING_BYTES($string, $start = 0, $length = NULL)


  • string - The input string.
  • start - Zero-based byte offset into string where returned substring should start.
  • length - Length in bytes from the start where returned substring should end.  NULL will return all the way to the end of the input string.


Returns a new string of bytes from the input string based on the specified start and length.


#/ Display "is some"
#LOCAL($Text, "This is some text.")
