## string class

##' String constructor -- gives some methods for character data
##'
##' A string is a length 1 character vector with additional methods
##' @param x a string
##' @param sep Passed to \code{paste} call when string is created
##' @param common Passed to \code{paste} call when string is created
##' @return a "String" instance. See is \code{+.String} method

##' @return a String class object

##'
##' @param x String object

##' Assign into a string object
##'
##' The string is indexed by position of character
##' @param i indices to slice into. Replaces if not specified
##' @param j ignored
##' @param ... ignored
##' @param value inserts value into this position

## Quotes etc.

##' escaping strings
##' 
##' we use shQuote as a convenience for
##' word -> 'word' however, it doesn't escape values as we would like, hence
##' this one.

##' @return character has single quotes escaped

  out <- gsub("\'","\\\\'",x)
  out <- paste("'",out,"'",sep="")

##' replace ' with \\'
##' Also can replace ' with &143; type thingy
