euc-to-char*

Arguments: eucvector &optional address

ff:euc-to-char* is obsolete. octets-to-native should be used instead. See also with-native-string. Using octets-to-native means fewer modules need be present in an image using this functionality. ff:euc-to-char* is defined in the :ffcompat module which is not present in an image by default.

This function converts a Lisp (simple-array (unsigned-byte 8) 1) of EUC characters to a C string by copying. If address is specified, then that address is used. Otherwise, the system malloc (memory allocator) is used to make space for the target (char *) string.
