    Function embedblob()
    Short Copies an external file or an array into a BLOB field
    Syntax EMBEDBLOB(table_field; [source : STRING; Typ : INTEGER|VAR array : [BYTE|CHAR|INTEGER|TBITS|REAL|STRING]]) : INTEGER
    Parameter table_field as
    table : INTEGER; field number : INTEGER
    table : INTEGER; label : STRING

    source : name of the external file
    type : type identifier of the file (see list below)
    array : array reference to be copied in
    Return -1 : Operation failed (illegal path etc.)
    otherwise : size of the BLOB in bytes
    See also:
    linkblob() copyblob() blobtype() blobsize()
    Description This embeds any file or an arrays content into a BLOB field.

    Not the path of the file is stored but its type.

    The following types are reserved:
    1. BMP (Windows Bitmap)
    2. PCX (PCX-Bitmap)
    3. WAV (Soundfile)
    4. WMF (Windows Metafile)
    5. GIF (Image)
    6. JPG (Image)


    Storing an array within a BLOB provides complete new possibilities to you as developer. Think of for example session dependend mark lists.
