Oops, only now I see he was trying to index a pointer like an array.  
And even in FPC I would very strongly recommend against typecasting a  
dynamic array to a pointer and then performing operations using this  
pointer. Dynamic arrays are opaque structures and trying to directly  
access the underlying data should never be done.
