Strings in Julia are delimited using the
julia> mystring = "Hello, World!" "Hello, World!"
Note that unlike some other languages, the
' symbol cannot be used instead.
' defines a character literal; this is a
Char data type and will only store a single Unicode scalar value:
julia> 'c' 'c' julia> 'character' ERROR: syntax: invalid character literal
One can extract the unicode scalar values from a string by iterating over it with a
julia> for c in "Hello, World!" println(c) end H e l l o , W o r l d !
