package utf8string

import "golang.org/x/exp/utf8string"

Package utf8string provides an efficient way to index strings by rune rather than by byte.


Package Files


type String Uses

type String struct {
    // contains filtered or unexported fields

String wraps a regular string with a small structure that provides more efficient indexing by code point index, as opposed to byte index. Scanning incrementally forwards or backwards is O(1) per index operation (although not as fast a range clause going forwards). Random access is O(N) in the length of the string, but the overhead is less than always scanning from the beginning. If the string is ASCII, random access is O(1). Unlike the built-in string type, String has internal mutable state and is not thread-safe.

func NewString Uses

func NewString(contents string) *String

NewString returns a new UTF-8 string with the provided contents.

func (*String) At Uses

func (s *String) At(i int) rune

At returns the rune with index i in the String. The sequence of runes is the same as iterating over the contents with a "for range" clause.

func (*String) Init Uses

func (s *String) Init(contents string) *String

Init initializes an existing String to hold the provided contents. It returns a pointer to the initialized String.

func (*String) IsASCII Uses

func (s *String) IsASCII() bool

IsASCII returns a boolean indicating whether the String contains only ASCII bytes.

func (*String) RuneCount Uses

func (s *String) RuneCount() int

RuneCount returns the number of runes (Unicode code points) in the String.

func (*String) Slice Uses

func (s *String) Slice(i, j int) string

Slice returns the string sliced at rune positions [i:j].

func (*String) String Uses

func (s *String) String() string

String returns the contents of the String. This method also means the String is directly printable by fmt.Print.
