A.4 String Handling
This clause presents the specifications of the package Strings and several
child packages, which provide facilities for dealing with string data.
Fixed-length, bounded-length, and unbounded-length strings are supported,
Wide_String, and Wide_Wide_String
The string-handling subprograms include searches for pattern strings
and for characters in program-specified sets, translation (via a character-to-character
mapping), and transformation (replacing, inserting, overwriting, and
deleting of substrings).
