StringOps

final class StringOps(s: String) extends AnyVal

Provides extension methods for strings.

Some of these methods treat strings as a plain collection of Chars without any regard for Unicode handling. Unless the user takes Unicode handling in to account or makes sure the strings don't require such handling, these methods may result in unpaired or invalidly paired surrogate code units.

Iterates over combinations.

Iterates over combinations. A _combination_ of length n is a subsequence of the original string, with the chars taken in order. Thus, "xy" and "yy" are both length-2 combinations of "xyy", but "yx" is not. If there is more than one way to generate the same subsequence, only one will be returned.

For example, "xyyy" has three different ways to generate "xy" depending on whether the first, second, or third "y" is selected. However, since all are identical, only one will be chosen. Which of the three will be taken is an implementation detail that is not defined.

Returns:

An Iterator which traverses the possible n-element combinations of this string.

Note:

This method treats a string as a plain sequence of Char code units and makes no attempt to keep surrogate pairs or codepoint sequences together. The user is responsible for making sure such cases are handled correctly. Failing to do so may result in an invalid Unicode string.

This method treats a string as a plain sequence of Char code units and makes no attempt to keep surrogate pairs or codepoint sequences together. The user is responsible for making sure such cases are handled correctly. Failing to do so may result in an invalid Unicode string.

def patch(from: Int, other: String, replaced: Int): String

Produces a new string where a slice of characters in this string is replaced by another string.

Produces a new string where a slice of characters in this string is replaced by another string.

Patching at negative indices is the same as patching starting at 0. Patching at indices at or larger than the length of the original string appends the patch to the end. If more values are replaced than actually exist, the excess is ignored.

Value parameters:
from

the index of the first replaced char

other

the replacement string

replaced

the number of chars to drop in the original string

Returns:

a new string consisting of all chars of this string except that replaced chars starting from from are replaced by other.

def span(p: Char => Boolean): (String, String)

Splits this string into a prefix/suffix pair according to a predicate.

Splits this string into a prefix/suffix pair according to a predicate.

Note: c span p is equivalent to (but more efficient than) (c takeWhile p, c dropWhile p), provided the evaluation of the predicate p does not cause any side-effects.

Value parameters:

def split(separator: Char): Array[String]

Split this string around the separator character

Split this string around the separator character

If this string is the empty string, returns an array of strings that contains a single empty string.

If this string is not the empty string, returns an array containing the substrings terminated by the start of the string, the end of the string or the separator character, excluding empty trailing substrings

If the separator character is a surrogate character, only split on matching surrogate characters if they are not part of a surrogate pair

The behaviour follows, and is implemented in terms of String.split(re: String)

Value parameters:
separator

the character used as a delimiter

Example:

"a.b".split('.') //returns Array("a", "b")
//splitting the empty string always returns the array with a single
//empty string
"".split('.') //returns Array("")
//only trailing empty substrings are removed
"a.".split('.') //returns Array("a")
".a.".split('.') //returns Array("", "a")
"..a..".split('.') //returns Array("", "", "a")
//all parts are empty and trailing
".".split('.') //returns Array()
"..".split('.') //returns Array()
//surrogate pairs
val high = 0xD852.toChar
val low = 0xDF62.toChar
val highstring = high.toString
val lowstring = low.toString
//well-formed surrogate pairs are not split
val highlow = highstring + lowstring
highlow.split(high) //returns Array(highlow)
//bare surrogate characters are split
val bare = "_" + highstring + "_"
bare.split(high) //returns Array("_", "_")
