      Pack a string array into a byte array


Calling Sequence

      strarr2byt, tarr, barr


      tarr = text string array. in

Keyword Parameters


      barr = byte array with text. out

Common Blocks


      Notes: The format of barr is:
        byte 0: NUM = Number of strings (255 max).
        byte 1: MAX = Length of longest string (255 max).
        byte 2: LEN1 = Length of 1st string.
        byte 3: C1_0 = 1st char of 1st string.
        byte 4: C1_1 = 2nd char of 1st string.
        byte 5: C1_2 = 3rd char of 1st string.
        . . .
        byte x1 (2+LEN1): C1_last = last char of 1st string.
        byte x1+1: LEN2 = Length of 2nd string.
        . . .
        To last char of last string in tarr.
        NUM, MAX, LEN1, C1, C2, ..., Clast, LEN2, C1, C2, ...
        Advantage: saves space, allows storing text arrays of
        various lengths. See also byt2strarr, the inverse.
