For what it's Wirth, they aren't "Pascal strings," they are ANSI strings, and other languages do use them.

I find them useful, and there are times when I'll use them.

If memory serves, originally Pascal specifically did not use ANSI strings, and it was always bad practise to assume that they were.

Whilst S[0] is used a lot, it's better to use Length(S)
