  Description     : alternative String module for OCaml

Astring exposes an alternative String module for OCaml. This module
tries to balance minimality and expressiveness for basic, index-free,
string processing and provides types and functions for substrings,
string sets and string maps.

Remaining compatible with the OCaml String module is a non-goal. The
String module exposed by Astring has exception safe functions, removes
deprecated and rarely used functions, alters some signatures and
names, adds a few missing functions and fully exploits OCaml's
newfound string immutability.

This is a new (indirect) dependency of ocaml-ipaddr. It will be
maintained in the OCaml team.
