Byte Array to String in VB

jasoncout asked
Last Modified: 2011-08-18
I read in an array of bytes off the network. I need to be able to split it into an array of strings. This works fine when using system.text.encoding.ASCII, except that some of the characters are greater then 127 (they're data bytes, not string bytes) but ASCII strips them off since it is only 7-bit. Is there an "ASCII 8-bit" enconding scheme or similiar? Thanks.
