Taming Snow Leopard: stringWithCString: length depreciation

I know this one has been depreciated in 10.5 to but i never found a nice replacement until now:

message = [NSString stringWithCString:(buffer + 4) length:(arg2 -5)];


message = [[[NSString alloc] initWithBytes:(buffer + 4) length:(arg2 -5) encoding:NSASCIIStringEncoding] autorelease];
