Well, I just found the perfect reference for my argument. Your own 
compiler documentation:


|Error: Incompatible types: got ”arg1” expected ”arg2” 
|There is no conversion possible between the two types Another
|possiblity is that they are declared in different declarations: 
| Var  
|    A1 : Array[1..10] Of Integer;  
|    A2 : Array[1..10] Of Integer;  
| Begin  
|    A1:=A2; { This statement gives also this error, it  
|              is due the strict type checking of pascal }  
| End.  

No more questions, your honor. Case closed. ;-)
