Detailed Description

Class defines a variable-length sequence of 8-bit characters. Despite class name (kept for historical reasons), it is intended to store UTF-8 string, not just ASCII characters. However, multi-byte nature of UTF-8 is not considered by the following methods:

Class provides editing operations with built-in memory management to make AsciiString objects easier to use than ordinary character arrays. AsciiString objects follow value semantics; in other words, they are the actual strings, not handles to strings, and are copied through assignment. You may use HAsciiString objects to get handles to strings.
