String Documentation Wiki Prototype


Strings in Julia represent a finite sequence of characters. The default String type consists of immutable sequence of UTF-8 codeunits.

This is a wiki experiment in building a friendly crowd sourced supplementary documentation for strings in Julia.

Current Official String Documentation

String literals

String construction

String manipulation

String concatenation

AbstractString Interface

Low-level string manipulation

String packages


This is wiki post to organize and prototype documentation for strings in Julia. It is inspired by Timothy’s post on Slack about how documentation in other languages is easier to navigate.

I have created a “wiki post” that allows others to edit the original post to help add to the documentation. The beginning is supposed to be a short index of string functions. Additionally, I have enabled posts to votable so that additional discussion of strings can be added in reply.
