2 byte array representation of a string

Dear Experts,

In Modula programming labguage, any string (array of chars) can be mapped to a array of cardinal type.A cardinal type can hold 2 bytes.

So a string can be mapped to a array of 2bytes values.

In java, I can split the String into individual single bytes (String.getBytes()).

But I need to simulate the same functiionality as in modula.
i.e, i need to get the array of 2 bytes values of a string.

Could anybody suggest me the means?

Thanks in advance

You don't use getBytes () for that. You generally use getBytes () while transferring the data through a network using sockets, etc (just an example - there could be more).
