    AnsiString

    I just heard someone mention AnsiString. Can someone explain to me what this is, what functions it includes, and what to include at the top of the code.

    AnsiString is an ANSI string. It's that simple.

    It's not unicode or widestring or whatever.... it's just plain ANSI.

    eg... char name[] = "bob";

    that's an ANSI string.

    Whatever is said in Latin sounds profound.

    Oh, because someone earlier said to include AnsiString and that it came with a bunch of functions.

    I think it's a Borland extension.
