Converting an array of char to a string...

Hi...
  Very simple. How do I convert an array of char to a string variable? I have a variable x which is declared as array[1..200] of char and I have a string variable y. I simply want the contents of x to go into y. I tried the 'Strpas' function to convert a null-terminated string to Pascal type sting but it gave me an error 'Incompatible types : Array and PChar'. There must be an easy way to do this. Can you help?

Cheers!

Hi aztec

in fact, you mustn't convert the types. You simply can use
y:=x; that fills y with all 200 chars of x. if you want to get
only a few of the chars, use y:=copy(x,StartIndex,Count);

You are quite right! Thanks!

I mistakenly entered the same question as this twice. Can someone delete the other one?

Thanks
