const ALLEGRO_USTR *al_ref_buffer(ALLEGRO_USTR_INFO *info, const char *s, size_t size)


Create a string that references the storage of an underlying buffer. The size of the buffer is given in bytes. You can use it to reference only part of a string or an arbitrary region of memory.

The string is valid while the underlying memory buffer is valid.
