ICI Modules: str

Modules by name : by type


The str module provides a number of useful string functions that are not part of ICI itself. Some of these functions are implemented as native code for performance reasons, others are implemented in ICI as they are convenience functions and ICI already provides the requisite facilties, e.g, str.trim() which removes leading and trailing whitespace from strings uses ICI's intrinsic regular expression support whereas str.tolower(), to convert a string to lowercase, is implemented in C for efficiency when dealing with large amounts of data.
