    Help with array of strings for new guy.


    Ive just started programming in delphi 7, and i need some help.

    I'm making a text-based calculator (eg. you write "three plus two" and the program answers " equals five.") and i need a function that can find a single character in an array of string. I'm currently using:

    stringa[x,y] := stringb [y]

    where stringa is the array and string b is an ordinary string.

    Can someone tell me where i'm wrong / how to fix it?

    Help is greatly appriciated!

    Look at the online help for Pos and AnsiPos functions.
