Oh, I see.  The original poster was asking about variable smashing
caused by the data exceeding the storage space allocated for the
STRING Variable.  I think they were thinking along the lines of
C's ability to do that.  COBOL is another one that has that
problem.  Fortran might also but I have never tried to do it.  :-)
