Syntax: CH_CHR4(<expN> [,@<memvarC> [,<positionN>]])

Overwrites four bytes in memory variable with signed long integer.


* Store 1000 into bytes 9-12 of string

* return 1000 as a 4 byte string
? CHR4(1000)


The specified number is "poked" into the character memory-variable starting
at the specified position (default position = 1).  The number is stored in
standard Intel four-byte low-high-low-high long integer format.  The
variable name must be prefixed with '@' to be updated properly.

Do not attempt to store data beyond the end of the string.

CH_CHR4(<expN>) with no second parameter returns the four-byte long-integer
representation of the specified number.  It is similar to Clipper's CHR
function but returns four bytes instead of one.
