	# Start: 2014-10-17 - Clean version.
	# Last: 2015-10-01 - Updated to treat stings simply by counting the number of characters (before the split character was included, but in the new version the character variables are collapsed to one sting per time step for each variable before using write.TSD_fun_lvar()).
