Just add {$H-} at the top (instead of {$H+} and be done with all the hassle of checking for Long- and ShortStrings altogether.
This recommendation is probably ok for a calculator application, but not in general, IMHO. The user at least must be aware of the consequence that strings cannot be longer than 255 characters then.
Yes, that's wat I also already mentioned in a previous post. Because the application isn't really string oriented (as calculator) the {$H-} would be the safest and fastest option. For all others you need to make certain choices. So when dealing with FPC 3.0.4 and lower in combination with Str() in {$H+} you need to be careful.

In other applications I wouldn't even begin to consider using Str(n:x:y) anyway. I would use format(). I know for sure Delphi doesn't use Str() internally for format (but I'm not sure if FPC does).
