convert to a byte array
convert(expr, ByteArray, opts)
Array,list,set, or string; expression to convert
(optional) option name or equation of the form option = value where option is one of copy, format, sourceformat, or targetformat.
copy : truefalse
Indicates whether a new rtable should be allocated when converting from other rtable types such as Vector or Matrix. The default is false, meaning that convert will attempt to provide a reference to the existing rtable instead of allocating a new one.
format : string
The option behaves identically to targetformat, but is only valid when expr is not itself a string or ByteArray.
sourceformat : string
A string corresponding to one of the file formats described in Formats. The input expr will be decoded using the specified format and the data returned as a ByteArray.
If the format specified is not one for which a ByteArray is a valid output type and no target format is specified, an error is issued.
targetformat : string
A string corresponding to one of the file formats described in Formats. The input expr will be encoded in the specified format and the encoded data returned as a ByteArray.
Note that this can be used in conjunction with sourceformat to decode data from a source to an arbitrary intermediate expression then encode it to ByteArray output in a different format.
convert(expr, ByteArray) takes a string or container object and produces a ByteArray object with content equivalent to the input.
If expr is a string, it can always be converted to a ByteArray.
If expr is an Array, list, or set and no source format is specified, it will be converted to a ByteArray if all the contents of expr are integers between -128 and 127. Otherwise, an error will be issued.
