#ifndef _DATAASCII_H_
#define _DATAASCII_H_
* int dataasciigen(listofchars, buffer, size, offset)
* This function fills buffer with ascii characters.
* The ascii characters are obtained from listofchars or the CHARS array
* if listofchars is NULL.
* Each char is selected by an index. The index is the remainder
* of count divided by the array size.
* This method allows more than one process to write to a location
* in a file without corrupting it for another process' point of view.
* The return value will be the number of character written in buffer
* (size).
int dataasciigen(char *, char *, int, int);
* int dataasciichk(listofchars, buffer, size, count, errmsg)
* This function checks the contents of a buffer produced by
* dataasciigen.
* return values:
* >= 0 : error at character count
* < 0 : no error
int dataasciichk(char *, char *, int, int, char**);
