BinaryFormat.Text(length as any, optional encoding as nullable number) as function


Returns a binary format that reads a text value. The length specifies the number of bytes to decode, or the binary format of the length that precedes the text. The optional encoding value specifies the encoding of the text. If the encoding is not specified, then the encoding is determined from the Unicode byte order marks. If no byte order marks are present, then TextEncoding.Utf8 is used.
