Post String support
Hello, I've just started messing around with RobotC and have been looking for documentation that will tell me what the similarities/differences between RobotC and standard C are. So far, I have been unsuccessful. Is there such documentation? So far I've gathered that function pointers and recursion are not possible. What other limitations are there?

Specifically, the main question I have is what kind of support is there for strings or C strings? I tried using the `string` keyword since it had syntax highlighting, but it gave me an error about that not being supported on this platform. I also tried using char pointers, but it doesn't seem to like double-quote syntax, e.g. `char * x = "string";`... What can I do?

Older platforms do not support strings. go to Robot : Platform Type. All of the cortex platforms support stings, but I don't know about NXT. Same goes for doubles, longs...ect.
