     I found a "Changes List" that includes the following:

# 19980722: don't allow type y(b:integer)=array[1..b] of integer;x=y; in --extended-pascal (fjf115a.pas)

# 19980405: allow type y(b:integer)=array[1..b] of integer; x=y; (fjf115.pas)

     Why was STRING singled out as not allowed to have an alias?
