Synopsis #

Header: fxcg/file.h
Syscall index: 0x1DDB
Function signature: void Bfile_NameToStr_ncpy(unsigned char* dest, const unsigned short* source, int n)

Converts a 16 bit string (array of unsigned short), suitable for use with Bfile syscalls, to a 8 bit string (array of unsigned char).

Parameters #

  • unsigned char* dest - Pointer to a buffer that will hold the resulting 8 bit string.
  • const unsigned short* source - Pointer to a 16 bit string containing the path to convert.
  • int n - How many bytes to convert (length of the source string, see #Comments for information on the behavior of the syscall wen the length doesn’t match n).

Comments #

If the length of source is below n, dest is padded. If source is terminated by 0xFFFF, dest is padded with 0xFF, otherwise it is padded with 0x00.

Bfile_StrToName_ncpy does the opposite of this syscall.
