handle& = FN NEWHANDLE _clear (fileSize&)
pointer& = [handle&] 'Right?
PTRSTR$(pointer&) = "This is text!"


or

string$ = "This is text!"
handle& = FN NEWHANDLE _clear (fileSize&)
length = len(string$)

for count = 1 to length
  temp$ = right$( left$(string$,count), 1)
  ascii = asc(temp$)
  poke handle&, ascii
