v = ByteAsc(string$[, pos])
pos. The return value
vwill be in the range of 0 to 255.
Since Hollywood strings cannot only contain text but also raw binary data, this function is suitable for accessing raw string bytes at specified indices. The normal Asc() function, on the other hand, is more appropriate for dealing with text strings because it operates in Unicode mode by default which means that the input string must be in valid UTF-8.
