Just do a typecast:
the resulting string is only valid for the duration of the particular statement
it is in, i.e. the C function should consider it a 'const' argument.
If you want a more 'permanent' string, you'll have to use strnew() to allocate
a new string on the heap, but then it must also explicitly be released:
... // use P as much as needed.
