Poke - Write a value of any type into memory

' write a value of any type in memory
' The value is written in the format of the value passed
' as the second argument, but you can overwrite it by passing
' an explicit data type in the third argument (this is the only
' way to store a value as a 16-byte Variant)
' This routine doesn't support strings and objects

Sub Poke(ByVal address As Long, value As Variant, Optional ByVal ValueType As _
    VbVarType = -1)
    ' if a data type wasn't provided, use VarType()
    If ValueType = -1 Then ValueType = VarType(value)
    Select Case ValueType

            CopyMemory ByVal address, CByte(value), 1
