Strings

There are two kinds of strings - immutable textual strings encoded in UTF-8 (<string>) and mutable vectors of bytes (<byte-vector>). In both cases, these types implement <<sequence>>. In first case elements of this sequence are unicode codepoints in second bytes itself. Most string functions work on both types.

Implementation of Unicode in dfsch supports only so called simple case-mapping - that means locale-independent conversion of case of one codepoint into another codepoint without regard to it's context.
