7.2.4 Move; FillChar

GPC supports Move and FillChar, and they're fully BP compatible. However, some data structures have different internal formats which may become relevant when using these procedures. E.g., using Move on file variables does not work in GPC (there are reasons why assigning file variables with := is not allowed in Pascal, and circumventing this restriction with Move is not a good idea). For other examples, see String type, Real type, and Endianness assumptions.
