Problem with BinaryEncode and variable params

Bernard's solution works. You could write C4 instead of CCCC and if  
you want to see some result, you could convert it to hex values,  
because you can't see NULL values without converting them.

   put "0,206,0" into tColors
   put item 1 of tColors into c1
   put item 2 of tColors into c2
   put item 3 of tColors into c3
   put binaryEncode("C4",0,c1,c2,c3) into varNewImageData
   get binaryDecode("H*",varNewImageData,x)
   put x
