Arguments: address &key vector length null-terminate aligned

This function returns a Lisp unsigned-byte (8) vector.

This function copies 8-bit byte data from the memory location specified by address into a lisp vector of type (simple-array (unsigned-byte 8) (*)). This vector is returned.

When the null-terminate argument is specified true, the copied string data (in the resulting vector) is null-terminated, that is the byte following the last data element is 0.

If the aligned keyword argument argument is true, then address is an aligned address. Aligned addresses are returned by functions like lispval-to-aligned-malloc-address.

If the vector argument is specified, then its value will be used (and returned) as the destination lisp array. If the vector is not long enough, an error is signaled.

In earlier releases, this function was named native-to-mb. That name is preserved for backward compatibility but new code should use the new name, native-to-octets.

See iacl.htm for general information on International Allegro CL, and see octets-to-native.
