Node:List/String Conversion, Next:String Selection, Previous:String Constructors, Up:Strings
When processing strings, it is often convenient to first convert them
into a list representation by using the procedure
work with the resulting list, and then convert it back into a string.
These procedures are useful for similar tasks.
|string->list str||Scheme Procedure|
|scm_string_to_list (str)||C Function|
Return a newly allocated list of the characters that make up
the given string str. |
|string-split str chr||Scheme Procedure|
|scm_string_split (str, chr)||C Function|
Split the string str into the a list of the substrings delimited
by appearances of the character chr. Note that an empty substring
between separator characters will result in an empty string in the
(string-split "root:x:0:0:root:/root:/bin/bash" #\:) => ("root" "x" "0" "0" "root" "/root" "/bin/bash") (string-split "::" #\:) => ("" "" "") (string-split "" #\:) => ("")
