CharAdd()

CHARADD()

Adds corresponding ASCII value of two strings

Syntax

      CHARADD( <[@]cString1>, <cString2> ) --> cAddString

Arguments

<[@]cString1> first string <cString2> second string

Returns

<cAddString> string with added ASCII values

Description

The CHARADD() function constructs a new string from the two strings passed as parameters. To do this, it adds the ASCII values of the corresponding characters of both strings and places a character in the resulting string whose ASCII value equals to that sum (modulo 256). If the first string is passed by reference, the resulting string is stored in <cString1>, too. By setting the CSETREF()-switch to .T., the return value can be omitted. If <cString2> is shorter than <cString1> and the last character of <cString2> has been processed, the function restarts with the first character of <cString2>.

Examples

      ? charadd( "012345678", chr( 1 ) ) // --> "123456789"
      ? charadd( "123456789", chr( 255 ) ) // --> "012345678"
      ? charadd( "0000", chr( 0 ) + chr( 1 ) + chr( 2 ) + chr( 3 ) )
                  // --> "0123"

Tests

      charadd( "012345678", chr( 1 ) ) == "123456789"
      charadd( "012345678", chr( 1 ) + chr( 2 ) ) == "133557799"
      charadd( "123456789", chr( 255 ) ) == "012345678"
      charadd( "123456789", chr( 255 ) + chr( 254 ) ) == "002244668"
