}In this case, the concat helper makes sure enough memory gets allocated
}for the anistring before anything is inserted. Of course, doing this for
}every character makes it very slow as you have found out.
}Another way is to use the setlength() procedure, with which you can create
}an empty ansistring with enough room for a specified amount of characters.
}Please read the manual for more information about ansistrings.

As I recall, ansistrings start with index 0, not 1 (like shortstrings
do). Then this is to be corrected, too. Not sure, though, I always start
my files with {$H-}.
