xstring – String manipulation for (La)TeX
The package provides macros for manipulating strings —
testing a string’s contents, extracting substrings,
substitution of substrings and providing numbers such as string
length, position of, or number of recurrences of, a substring.
The package works equally in Plain TeX and LaTeX (though e-TeX is always required). The strings to be processed may contain (expandable) macros.
