_TALYB - build a byte (ASCII) tally.

(Not in the ANSI standard)


tally = _talyb(ptr,length);


char *ptr;
points to a character in a string.
int length;
is the number to be put in the length field of the tally. The absolute value of "length" must be less than 4096. The "length" argument may be omitted, in which case the default is zero.
int tally;
is assigned the one-word tally.


"_talyb" creates a byte tally to the ASCII character indicated by "ptr".
