Implementation lard
Description The type of all strings.
Notes Strings are now implemented using a proper reference-counting mechanism with means that they are freed when appropriate. String variables and parameters must be initialised when they are declared and finalised when their scope ends. Failure to initialise will cause run time problems. Failure to finalise will cause more memory to be used than would otherwise be necessary.
