String Manipulation

  • Michael Coughlan


In many languages, string manipulation is achieved by using a library of string functions or, as in Java, the methods of a String class. COBOL also uses a library of string-manipulation functions, but most string manipulation is done using reference modification and the three string-handling verbs: STRING, UNSTRING, and INSPECT.
