updating oE peek_string


<built-in> function peek_string(atom addr) 

reads an ASCII string in RAM, starting from a supplied address.

  1. addr : an atom, the address at which to start reading.

A sequence, of bytes, the string that could be read.


Further, peeking in memory that does not belong to your process is something the operating system could prevent, and you'd crash with a machine level exception.


An ASCII string is any sequence of bytes and ends with a 0 byte. If you peek_string at some place where there is no string, you will get a sequence of garbage.
