Bug#801085: ITP: r-cran-stringi -- GNU R character string processing facilities



Package: wnpp
Severity: wishlist
Owner: Andreas Tille <tille@debian.org>

* Package name    : r-cran-stringi
  Version         : 0.5-5
  Upstream Author : Marek Gagolewski <gagolews@rexamine.com>
* URL             : http://cran.r-project.org/web/packages/stringi/
* License         : BSD
  Programming Lang: R
  Description     : GNU R character string processing facilities
 Allows for fast, correct, consistent, portable, as well as 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. Among available features there are: pattern
 searching (e.g. via regular expressions), random string generation,
 string collation, transliteration, concatenation, date-time formatting
 and parsing, etc.


Remark: This is a precondition to upgrade r-cran-stringr which was
packaged by the Debian Med team.  We are maintaining the package at
   svn://anonscm.debian.org/debian-med/trunk/packages/R/r-cran-stringi/
