dst and src are passed to the function that calls Copybytes();
function copy_compressed_bytes(var dst: array of Char; var dloc, sloc:
integer; src: array of Char;
len: integer): integer;
Copybytes(@dst[dloc], at src[sloc],16);
You may be onto something. dst is passed as a *var* because I'm
interested in the destination array but can discard the src after it's
I'll look into how the memory is allocated for src.
