The type of the output follows the first element when using the string addition operator ($+) in GAUSS. Therefore you can use this operator to convert a string to a character vector like this:

myString = "GDP";
myCharVec = 0$+myString;

Now myCharVec will be a character vector which you can print using the ($) operator like so:

print $myCharVec;

which will return:

   GDP
