C.2.5 String Changes

The class hierarchy of ‘csString’ has changed. Most functionality is now provided by the new superclass ‘csStringBase’. From this, csStringFast<> is subclassed, and ‘csString’ descends from csStringFast<>. csStringFast<> is a templated class featuring an internal character buffer which is used instead of dynamically heap-allocated memory when the string length is sufficently short (as controlled by the class template argument). This generalization can make ‘csStringFast<>’ (and its subclass ‘csString’) much faster when used as automatic (stack-allocated) variables, even when declared inside ‘for{}’-loops, since slow heap-allocation often can be avoided.

For simplification purposes, several methods have been removed from ‘csString’ and ‘iString’ (when present):
