Reading character variables through nc_get_var*_(text|schar|uchar)

Hello,

I am a bit confused concerning the functions nc_get_var*_(text|schar|uchar)
Specially for my case nc_get_vara_text, nc_get_vara_uchar, nc_get_vara_schar.

I thought they were all designed to read character variables returning the same
values in all cases (just casting the pointers).

But when I use nc_get_vara_uchar I have the following error:
«Attempt to convert between text & numbers»

Are the uchar/schar variants of the functions for numbers or do I
miss something?

Thanks.
Philippe
