    I'm not clear on what you mean by "use". Fixed-length strings, whether
    ASCIIZ or not, are not implemented as OLE strings. If you manipulate a
    fixed-length string, however, the compiler may need to create temporary
    OLE strings.

    Hello,

    No they don't.

    For proof look at pointers. You must use STRPTR in order to get a pointer to the data of an OLE string as VARPTR would return a pointer to the handle of the OLE string. However VARPTR will return the address of the data for ASCIIZ and fixed len. strings because they have no handles.

    Hello,


    Do ASCIIZ and FIXED STRINGS use the OLE strings?
