Delphi 2.0 has two string types: short strings, and if you couldn't guess,
long strings. Short strings are only of length 1 to 255. Long strings,
however, are only limited by the memory of your system.

There is a compiler directive, {H+}, which sets the default type for strings
to long strings - so if you just declare something as a "string" type then
Delphi will make it a long string.

This is the default though, so you shouldn't need to change anything. I
guess that it's only there so that you can use {H-} to make your program
backwards compatable for systems with only short string types or something
of that nature. Check out the help in Delphi 2.0 for more info.
