  The stringstrings package
  =========================

This package provides a large and sundry array of routines for the
manipulation of strings.  The routines are developed not only for
cosmetic application, such as the changing of letter cases, selective
removal of character classes, and string substitution, but also for
programming application, such as character look-ahead applications,
argument parsing, if-tests for various string conditions, etc.  A key
tenet employed during the development of this package (unlike, for
comparison, the \uppercase and \lowercase routines) was to have
resultant strings be ``expanded'' (i.e., the product of an \edef), so
that the \stringstrings routines could be strung together sequentially and
nested (after a fashion) to achieve very complex manipulations.

Run `stringstrings.ins' through LaTeX to produce stringstrings.sty
     from stringstrings.dtx.
Run `stringstrings.dtx' through LaTeX to produce the documentation.

stringstrings – String manipulation for cosmetic and programming application

The package provides a large and sundry set of macros for the manipulation of strings. The macros are developed not merely for cosmetic application (such as changing the case of letters and string substitution), but also for programming applications such as character look-ahead, argument parsing, conditional tests on various string conditions, etc.

The macros were designed all to be expandable (note that things such as \uppercase and \lowercase are not expandable), so that the macros may be strung together sequentially and nested (after a fashion) to achieve rather complex manipulations.
