    Sorry, I had to recheck thred multiple times before I found it. Initially
 he did not mention the type at all.
    Anyway, if variable is of type PChar, then there is not reason to take 
an address of first element to pass it to PChar. Passing wariable itselt is 
much clearer.
   And for ansistring MyReturnStr casting it to PChar would have worked also. 
After setting it to required length with SetLength.
