Can anyone here explain me, what is the meaning of a mask parameter 
in function




from micomput.h header.

Actually I need edit_packed, but they are functionally similar.
The only text I managed to find on the mask is :
"There are a number of general editing functions (such as 
unconditional insertion of a mask character string), that can be 
performed during the transformation."

And here is the mask, applied in example:

char edit_mask[18] =
{0x34, 0xb1, 0x40, 0x4e, 0x34, 0x60, 0x34,
0xB2, 0xB2, 0xB2, 0xB2, 0xB2, 0xB2, 0xb2,
0xB2, 0xB2, 0xB2, 0xB2};

Funny, is this "description" enough for anybody?

Any advice will be appreciated...
