strings: Functions for working with strings, including Text, ByteString, etc.

[ library, mit, string, text, utility ] [ Propose Tags ]

This package provides various functions for working with strings, such as join, split, toUppercase, etc.

The functions in this package work with all kinds of strings such as Text, ByteString, String, and their respective lazy counter parts. There is also an interface which is agnostic of the underlying string type.

Fixed an issue with strSplitAll. Applied to the empty string it should return an empty list, but it returned a list containing a single empty string. It now returns correctly the empty list.
Added strToUpper, strToLower, strCapitalize, strCons, and strMap. Also sCapitalize, sCons, and sMap.




Note: This package has metadata revisions in the cabal description newer than included in the tarball. To unpack the package including the revisions, use 'cabal get'.
