If there is, I cannot find it. {$H} does nothing and I re-read the
portion of the docs that deal with the sting types again and I don't
see what I'm doing wrong.  

If I declare "stmp: ansiString;" then the executable compiles and
links fine but the strings don't actually work.  For example, I
"readln(txt,stmp);" and stmp only receives the first 255 columns of
the file.
