0000927: Support a new data type for variable length fileds (strings/binaries) with length and pointer
To build a fix data structure containing variable length data fields it would be useful to support a length and pointer representation in table support.

1 byte length plus pointer
2 byte length plus pointer
4 byte length plus pointer
8 byte length plus pointer


The the memory for the string is dynamic allocated and a write, the using application must free it. The static format is the default and represent the old direct representation. All length are in system endianess, the pointers are 32 or 64 bit depending on the system and at read of such a format, the few byte for this are interpreted in platform depended format.
No tags attached.

A new formatting component (TABVAR) was implement to read and write certain length pointer structures from and to the memory.

It can be activated as own format.

col(type.binary() format.var(method=xxxx)) or in a short form

col(type.binary() varfmt=xxx)
