Um... well, AFAIK Eric did write the PASCAL unit, but some other person
ported the C code that makes up the SQLite library to BeOS. The two acts are
quite seperate.


Strings.pas is legacy, from TurboPascal days, where as the modern 'SysUtils'
is a unit that contains almost all of the utility functions that exist. I'd
much rather use a single unit and let the compiler strip the unwanted
symbols rather than have to include 5+ units to cover String, integer,
variant etc functionality. Maybe that's just me though <g>
