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.
