This chapter talks about the parsing and formatting functions that are a
part of the
Str class. Note that the
Str class does not
try to provide every imaginable function but does try to provide
functions that make parsing through string data in files convenient.
Most of the functions not provided can be found in the C standard library
and can be easily used. For example, there is no
Str class but using the standard
Str str_x = "10"; int x = atoi(str_x);
Note that the auto-cast to
const char* that
makes using C-library routines simple.
