Binary.pokeString(3kaya)				       Kaya module reference					  Binary.pokeString(3kaya)

Binary::pokeString - Write a String of binary data. SYNOPSIS
Void pokeString( var Binary block, Int offset, String val ) ARGUMENTS
block The binary block offset The location to write to (starting from zero) val The String to write. DESCRIPTION
Poke the string val into the block, starting at offset offset An Binary.OffsetOutOfRange(3kaya) exception will be thrown if it attempts to access a value outside the block. Note that the String will be stored in the block in UTF-8 encoding, not as raw Kaya chars, so you need to use Builtins.byteLength(3kaya) to determine how much space you need (and then add one for a terminating null byte).
