ABSTRACT

  The R1000 environment has several string packages of 
differing sorts.  They are generally mediocre and have 
extremely sparse and uninteresting interfaces.  This led 
to the VString Library.  The intent is to have a single 
library that implements a set of string operations that 
are sufficiently "interesting" as to allow the creation 
of nontrivial string processing programs.
  
  The packages include:
  
  Vstring_Type    - Defines Vstring_Data and Vstring types.
  Vstring_Assign  - Assign, Append, Prepend operations.
  Vstring_Case    - Case changes for characters and Vstrings.    
  Vstring_Compare - Compare strings for <, >, =, <=, >=, /=; 
                    with(out) case. 
  Vstring_Equal   - Compare strings or string prefixes for 
                    equality; with(out) case.   
  Vstring_Heap    - (De)Allocate or Resize Vstring heap 
                    objects.    
  Vstring_Io      - Input/Output of Vstring objects.      
  Vstring_Query   - Query on Vstring objects; length, 
                    contents, character lopping, substringing.   
  Vstring_Scan    - Scanning (form of simple pattern matching) 
                    of Vstrings.
