Indexing Into Strings

You can index into variables as though they are character arrays. Indices are zero-based. For example:

s = "abc"

x = s[0]    // x now contains the string "a"


Indexing into a variable yields a new string containing a single character.

The string that is returned by indexing one past the last character is an empty string. This is similar to zero-terminated strings in C, only the zero "character" is an empty string.

s = "abc"

length = strlen(s)

ch = s[length] // ch now contains the empty string

if (ch == "")

   msg "End of string."
