REBOL 3 Functions: as-string


Editor note: This function no longer exists in REBOL 3

as-string converts a binary datatype to a string datatype but without copying the contents of the binary string. Normally, if you use to-string, a new string will be created.

This function is most useful if you have large binary strings that you need to access or modify using other string operations.

data: as-string read/binary %bin-file
