RAW-TRANSFER( ) method

Copies data to or from a buffer object with no interpretation. This method works like the RAW-TRANSFER statement.
Return type: LOGICAL
Applies to: Buffer object handle


RAW-TRANSFER ( to-mode , handle-expression )
A logical specifying the direction of the data transfer. When to-mode is TRUE, data is transferred from the buffer object handle to handle-expression. When to-mode is FALSE, data is transferred from handle-expression to the buffer object handle.
An expression that evaluates to the handle of either a buffer or a buffer field.
When using the RAW-TRANSFER statement to copy from a buffer object that contains a BLOB or CLOB field, the AVM skips the BLOB or CLOB field and stores the Unknown value (?) in the BLOB or CLOB field of the target buffer object.
