Astring — Alternative String module for OCaml
Astring exposes an alternative
String module for OCaml. This module
tries to balance minimality and expressiveness for basic, index-free,
string processing and provides types and functions for substrings,
string sets and string maps.
Remaining compatible with the OCaml
String module is a non-goal. The
String module exposed by Astring has exception safe functions,
removes deprecated and rarely used functions, alters some signatures
and names, adds a few missing functions and fully exploits OCaml's
newfound string immutability.
Astring depends only on the OCaml standard library. It is distributed under the ISC license.
