String class

Older compilers do not provide the predefined class String. Here is an implementation in StringClass.h. Here a code example how to use it main1.cp. Another code example using it in the Standard Template Library (STL) is here main3.cp

Note:
the declaration of the class and the definition of its methods are packed into a single ".h" header file. When using it, you may have to separate this in a declaration(.h) and method definition(.cpp) files.

String I/O stream

An object of the string class can be used as a stream with the class istrstream.h. Here a code example how to use it main2.cp.

Note:
the declaration of the class and the definition of its methods are packed into a single ".h" header file. When using it, you may have to separate this in a declaration(.h) and method definition(.cpp) files.

Cleaning OSX '._' (dot underscore) files

MacOSX uses hidden files to store system data/resources whose names start with "._". In some cases those files cause trouble. Here is an application for MacOS classic that builds a list of those files and offers their deletion or to make them visible.
