strinS - string of characters
struct string strinS(n, type, generic)
union generic generic;
StrinS allocates and returns a string which consists of n
identical characters given by type, generic (see generic(inc)).
If type, generic is a string, the first character is used.
If type, generic is an integer, its value is used and is expected
to represent a reasonable ASCII symbol. If type, generic has any
other type, it will be treated as an integer and thus misinterpreted.
If n is zero, the null string is returned.
This function implements the BASIC STRING$ function.
Error 5 (Illegal function call) is generated if n is negative
or if type, generic is a string and is empty or if
type, generic is not a string and its value is negative or
greater than 255.
