Need to copy a char from screen

2004-04-19 01:00:04 AM
Let's say I plot a char like this on screen: text(x,y,'!',1);
how do I copy the char from x,y back to a variable ?
I need to test a given coordinate on a ascii-screen and pick
the symbol that is on that location so that I later can check if
an object that moves to this x,y location crashes into a specific char.
