"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years.

Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

What about ?

var
  St : String;
  Ch : PChar;
begin
  Ch := PChar(St);
  ...
end;

itamar's answer will convert string to PChar.  If you want to convert string to Char, try this:

var
  c: PChar;
  s: string;
begin
  c := ' ';
  if (Length(s) > 0) then
    c := @s[1];
  ...
end;

P.S.  Should read
    c := s[1];
NOT
    c := @s[1];

yeah sure

Procedure WhatEver(S : String);
Var Ch : Char;
Begin
 Ch := S[1];
End;

now ch will contain the first char of string <S>

thats it,
