stringi: Character String Processing Facilities

stringi allows for fast, correct, consistent, portable, and convenient character string/text processing in every locale and any native encoding. Owing to the use of the ICU library, the package provides R users with platform-independent functions known to Java, Perl, Python, PHP, and Ruby programmers.
