(Chapter 5 in the text).

Strings are in some respects the simplest of Numeric Arrays, since each character in a string requires only one byte of storage. However, unlike numeric arrays:

  1. We are NOT (necessarily) interested in how many characters are in a string
  2. We are NOT (necessarily) interested in the position (in the array) of any character in the array
  3. We do NOT perform any arithmetic operations on strings
  4. We DO perform special operations on strings

As a result, srings we require additional procedures and operations on strings.
