bool StrCpy (a:destination, string source[, int source_index]);


Copy a source string to a destination array as a series of characters. Optionally, the copy can start from a given index in the source string.

Return Value

True if the entire string (or substring) was successfully copied to the array; false if the copy ran out of room or if a negative source_index was given.


This function returns true if the map lump is in the form "ExMx". It copies the string to a char array, then it compares individual characters at 2 positions, and skips the character in IsMap_LumpChar[1].

int IsMap_LumpChar[8];
str IsMap_LumpStr;

	return FALSE;
