Binary::setBlockData(3) Set the contents of a block.

SYNOPSIS

Void setBlockData( var Binary block, Int offset, [Int] bdata )

ARGUMENTS

block The binary block

offset The offset to start at (zero-indexed)

bdata The data to write, as an array of Int s

DESCRIPTION

Set the contents of (part of) a block from an array. An Binary.OffsetOutOfRange(3kaya) Exception will be thrown if this would cause a write outside the bounds of the block. The following bits of code are equivalent:


 setBlockData(block,offset,bdata);
 // is equivalent to
 for [email protected] in bdata {
     poke(block,offset+idx,byte);
 }

However, setBlockData is more efficient and checks bounds before any data is written - the above for loop could write partial data if offset+idx was greater than blockSize(block)
