MemoryBlock::copyFrom not copying all the data (not corruption)

Unlike e.g.LoadFromHexString, MemoryBlock::copyFrom does not ensure the size of the MemoryBlock before doing a memcpy.

If there’s a good reason why it doesn’t can the doc at least make that really clear and jassert?
Thanks :slight_smile:

If you want a full copy, you can simply use the = operator.

The docs do make it clear that this case is handled:
numBytes how much to copy in (if this goes beyond the size of the memory block, it will be clipped so not to do anything nasty)

Ahh, so it does, Thanks.
Home schooling and reading docs properly is not quite going as well as I thought :smiley:

Obviously the kids need to be reading the docs!
