Thanks Michael.  Now the other obvious question, why is TrueBoolStrs and
FalseBoolStrs array types?  Why not simply of type String?

  TrueBoolStrs[0] := 'Waar';

  FalseBoolStrs[0] := 'Onwaar';

Looking at the implementation of BoolToStr(), it only ever uses the
first element. Reading the fpdoc help on BoolToStr and FalseBoolStrs it
doesn't mention anything about why the are defined as arrays and what
the other elements (if more than one) is used for.
