In 4GL raw data can be stored in $-registers. Currently, in 3GL you can only write string (uputregs), integer (uputgreg) and floating points(uputregf) values to $-registers. There is no method foreseen to write/read raw data from $register. I would like to have an extended 3GL API containing these two new methods: uputregraw/ugetregraw that allows me to write/read binary data to/from $-register.
Writing/Reading binary data from $-register may be usefull/required in may scenarios. This is for instance VERY USEFULL if 3GL needs to return binary data to 4GL -> through $101
