Arguments: string &key null-terminate

This function is obsolete. Users are encouraged to use string-to-octets instead. The equivalance is:

(string-to-octets string 
                  :null-terminate null-terminate 
                  :external-format :euc)

See also with-native-string.

This function creates a Lisp (unsigned-byte 8 (*)) array containing the EUC character translations for the characters in string. If the value of the :null-terminate keyword argument is t (the default), then a null character is placed at the end of the result array. (When passed to C, of course, the Lisp array looks like a C string containing EUC characters.)
