The string datatype is a built in type. A string may be declared as shown below.
my_string = "this is an example of a string" cout << my_string
The string is printed to the console using the stream cout
It is often useful to concatenate strings. This may be done as shown below.
my_string_a = "this is an example of a string" my_string_b = " and this is another example of a string" my_string_c = my_string_a + my_string_b cout << my_string_c
The integer and number datatypes have a to_string() method which converts the numeric type to a string. This has been used in the samples to date.
