about_stringx: Drop-in Replacements for Base String Functions Powered by Stringi


stringx reimplements the built-in R string processing functions based on stringi – a mature R package for fast, correct, consistent, and convenient text manipulation. Thanks to the ICU library, we obtain predictable results on every platform, in each locale, and under any native character encoding.
