Description

Copies bytes from a source to a destination.

Move copies Count bytes from Source to Dest. No range checking is performed. Move compensates for overlaps between the source and destination blocks.

Whenever possible, use the global SizeOf function (Delphi) or the sizeof operator (C++) to determine the count.

Note: This method has an untyped parameter (Dest), which can lead to memory corruption. To avoid this problem, use SizeOf to determine the number of bytes appropriate to "move" for the data type being used in Count parameter.
