Constructor
MemoryBlock.Constructor(bytes as Integer)

Creates a new MemoryBlock with the size specified in bytes.

Notes

For 32-bit apps, you can request a maximum of about 2 to 3 GB depending on the OS. Generally Windows is closer to 2GB and macOS/Linux are closer to 3GB. There is no practical limit for 64-bit apps.

Examples

The following example reads a real number into a memory block and then displays it:

Dim m As New MemoryBlock(4)
Dim d As Single
m.SingleValue(0) = 123.456
d = m.SingleValue(0)
MsgBox(Str(d))


The following example stores a string in a MemoryBlock and displays it:

Dim m As New MemoryBlock(13)
m.Byte(0) = 12
m.Byte(1) = 72
m.Byte(2) = 101
m.Byte(3) = 108
m.Byte(4) = 108
m.Byte(5) = 111
m.Byte(6) = 32
m.Byte(7) = 87
m.Byte(8) = 111
m.Byte(9) = 114
m.Byte(10) = 108
m.Byte(11) = 100
m.Byte(12) = 33
MsgBox(m.PString(0))
