Copy a buffer pointed to by a PSZ to a newly allocated block of memory and return a new pointer to that memory.

Assembly:  XSharp.RT (in XSharp.RT.dll) Version: 2.08
Syntax
 FUNCTION PszLen(
	pszString AS PSZ
) AS DWORD
View Source

Parameters

pszString
Type: Psz
A null-terminated string.

Return Value

Type: UInt32
Remarks
The newly allocated string is a static object, which implies that the garbage collector does not move the string.  To free up the buffer of a static object, use OldSpaceFree().
Remarks
Tip Tip
The PSZ type is included in the X# language and runtime for compatibility only. In most cases the type can and should be replaced with normal strings.
If you need to interface with Win32 API functions that expect an ansi string, there is often also an alternative with a unicode string. We recommend to use that alternative when possible.
Examples
This example displays the storage addresses of two variables:
X#
LOCAL pszString AS PSZ
LOCAL pszOrigString AS PSZ
pszOrigString := "Cavo tree"
pszString := PszAlloc(pszOrigString)
