Hi
I would like to create a fixed length string that has 64 characters in it. And then insert another string to the start of the fixed length string, so there are a number of trailing characters.
right now i'm doing it like this:

    
    
    
    
    SpaceString(str)  
    {  
      var s_Buffer = "                                                                ";   // 64 byte string  
      var n_StrLength = sizeof(str);  
        
      // If passed string can fit into buffer  
      if(n_StrLength <= sizeof(s_Buffer))  
          return strins(s_Buffer,str,0);
    
    
    
    
    }
    
    
    

that works fine but it isn't flexible, I may want to change the s_Buffer length to 128 or 256.
Is there a function that will easily create a string with a certain number of characters?
Thanks
