I have commited this change. The only place in the code where I get a  
compiler warning because of this, is the line

         symbolString  = [[NSString alloc] initWithCharacters: &aChar  
length: 1];

in BCSymbol.

I changed it to:

         symbolString  = [[NSString alloc] initWithCString: (char *)  
&aChar length: 1];

It seems to work (no compiler warnings) but I am not sure if this is  
the right way to go. BTW, since we are already using the symbolChar  
in BCSymbol, do we still need the symbolString?
