Function

CFStringCreateWithPascalString(_:_:_:)

Creates an immutable CFString object from a Pascal string.

Declaration

func CFStringCreateWithPascalString(_ alloc: CFAllocator!, _ pStr: ConstStr255Param!, _ encoding: CFStringEncoding) -> CFString!

Parameters

alloc

The allocator to use to allocate memory for the new string. Pass NULL or kCFAllocatorDefault to use the current default allocator.

pStr

The Pascal string to be used to create the string.

encoding

The encoding of the characters in the Pascal string.

Return Value

An immutable string containing pStr, or NULL if there was a problem creating the object. Ownership follows the The Create Rule.

Discussion
