wchar*-to-string

Arguments: address

Use of wchar*-to-string is deprecated. Please use native-to-string instead. Using native-to-string in place of this function requires fewer modules in the image. ff:wchar*-to-string is defined in the :ffcompat module which is not present in an image by default.

wchar*-to-string function converts a C style wide-char (16-bits / character) string to a Lisp string by copying. The source string is assumed to be null-terminated by two zero octets (i.e., a 16-bit zero).

This function is equivalent to the following

(native-to-string address :external-format :fat)
