BBjString::getChars

Description

In BBj 7.0 and higher, this method copies characters from this string into the destination character array.

The first character to be copied is at index srcBegin; the last character to be copied is at index srcEnd-1 (thus the total number of characters to be copied is srcEnd-srcBegin). The characters are copied into the subarray of dst starting at index dstBegin and ending at index:

dstBegin + (srcEnd-srcBegin) - 1
