string_set_byte_at

Set a byte in a string.

Syntax:

string_set_byte_at(str, pos, byte);


Argument Description
str The string to change the byte of.
pos The position within the string (starting at 1) to change the byte of.
byte The new byte value.


Returns:string


Description

This function sets a byte directly in a string (based on the UTF8 format) and returns a copy of the string with the changes.

NOTE: This function is incredibly slow so consider carefully whether it is necessary and where you use it.


Example:

str = string_set_byte_at("hello", 2, 97);

The above code would change the byte value of the second letter in the string, and so set the variable "str" to hold "hallo".
