=== function ===


=== Syntax ===
string$ = PSTR$(address&)


=== Description ===
This function returns the string which is located at the indicated address& in memory; address& must be a long-integer expression or a POINTER variable.
The data at address& should be a string in "Pascal format," which is the string format used by FB string variables and by MacOS Toolbox string parameters. In Pascal format, the first byte is interpreted as a number in the range 0 through 255 which indicates the length of the string's text; this length byte is immediately followed by the text of the string.
