Why would anyone ever need this? You'd simply pass const char sBuffer into the function call. If you need multiple, pass the amount and use [][]. This seems a little insane

PHP Code:
//Somewhere in the vast emptiness of a plugins source code
char sBuffer[12];
strcopy(sBuffersizeof(sBuffer), "Carrot");
FunctionCall(sBuffer)

void FunctionCall(const char sBuffer[])
{
    
//Do stuff

Code:
public void OnPluginStart()
{
	char sBuffer[12];
	strcopy(sBuffer, sizeof(sBuffer), "Test");
	SQL_TConnect(OnSQLConnect, "default", sBuffer);
}

public void OnSQLConnect(Handle owner, Handle hndl, const char[] error, const char[] sBuffer)
{
	PrintToServer(sBuffer);
}
Example using SQL_TConnect since it has the 'any data' or 'any ...' parameters to pass through cells. That doesn't work because the prototype is different so it outputs an error.

This works:
Code:
#include <sourcemod>
#include <data_string_parameter>

#pragma semicolon 1
#pragma newdecls required

public Plugin myinfo = {
	name        = "",
	author      = "",
	description = "",
	version     = "0.0.0",
	url         = ""
};

public void OnPluginStart()
{
	char sBuffer[12];
	strcopy(sBuffer, sizeof(sBuffer), "Test");
	SQL_TConnect(OnSQLConnect, "default", AnyString(sBuffer));
}

public void OnSQLConnect(Handle owner, Handle hndl, const char[] error, any data)
{
	char sBuffer[12];
	ReadAnyString(data, sBuffer, sizeof(sBuffer));
	
	PrintToServer(sBuffer);
}

Sadly.
