Then use a pointer
by Brian Hunt on Tue 27th Apr 2004 19:20 UTC

A string is always a string in this language. Think of it like a long in C. There is no such thing as a null long or a null real in C. If you want a "null string" in the traditional C approach then use a string pointer. Then you can assign it null or to a sting. Not a very ugly work around is it?
