'As Any' doesn't work. 'ByVal' doesn't work.

Private WinApi Sub CopyMemory Lib "kernel32.dll" Alias "RtlMoveMemory" (Destination As Any, Source As Any, ByVal length As Long)

Any way around this? thanks.

CopyMemory host,ByVal gethostbyname(address), Len(host)

Any way around this also? thanks.

'ByVal' works really good!


'As Any' doesn't work

As Any in VB means just push a pointer to the stack


'ByVal' doesn't work.

It's more like: ByRef does'nt work
but yes there is a workaround please have a look at this:
How to use pointer with Jabaco

But it would be better for you to forget about the old VB-hacks with the intensive usage of CopyMemory.
Show us your code, maybe there are already any Java classes that solves your problems in another way.

good luck
