DESCRIPTION

       The package textutil::string provides miscellaneous string manipulation commands.

       The complete set of procedures is described below.

       ::textutil::string::chop string
              A  convenience  command.  Removes  the  last  character  of  string and returns the
              shortened string.

       ::textutil::string::tail string
              A convenience command. Removes the  first  character  of  string  and  returns  the
              shortened string.

       ::textutil::string::cap string
              Capitalizes the first character of string and returns the modified string.

       ::textutil::string::uncap string
              The  complementary operation to ::textutil::string::cap. Forces the first character
              of string to lower case and returns the modified string.

       ::textutil::string::longestCommonPrefixList list

       ::textutil::string::longestCommonPrefix ?string...?
              Computes the longest common prefix for either the strings given to the command,  or
              the  strings  specified  in  the  single  list, and returns it as the result of the
              command.

              If no strings were specified the result is the empty string.  If  only  one  string
              was  specified,  the  string  itself  is  returned, as it is its own longest common
              prefix.
