/*
 * tclStringObj.c --
 *
 *	This file contains functions that implement string operations on Tcl
 *	objects. Some string operations work with UTF strings and others
 *	require Unicode format. Functions that require knowledge of the width
 *	of each character, such as indexing, operate on Unicode data.
 *
 *	A Unicode string is an internationalized string. Conceptually, a
 *	Unicode string is an array of 16-bit quantities organized as a
 *	sequence of properly formed UTF-8 characters. There is a one-to-one
 *	map between Unicode and UTF characters. Because Unicode characters
 *	have a fixed width, operations such as indexing operate on Unicode
 *	data. The String object is optimized for the case where each UTF char
 *	in a string is only one byte. In this case, we store the value of
 *	numChars, but we don't store the Unicode data (unless Tcl_GetUnicode
 *	is explicitly called).
 *
 *	The String object type stores one or both formats. The default
 *	behavior is to store UTF. Once Unicode is calculated by a function, it
 *	is stored in the internal rep for future access (without an additional
 *	O(n) cost).
 *
 *	To allow many appends to be done to an object without constantly
 *	reallocating the space for the string or Unicode representation, we
 *	allocate double the space for the string or Unicode and use the
 *	internal representation to keep track of how much space is used vs.
 *	allocated.

/*
 * TCL STRING GROWTH ALGORITHM
 *
 * When growing strings (during an append, for example), the following growth
 * algorithm is used:
 *
 *   Attempt to allocate 2 * (originalLength + appendLength)
 *   On failure:
 *	attempt to allocate originalLength + 2*appendLength + TCL_MIN_GROWTH
 *
 * This algorithm allows very good performance, as it rapidly increases the
 * memory allocated for a given string, which minimizes the number of
 * reallocations that must be performed. However, using only the doubling
 * algorithm can lead to a significant waste of memory. In particular, it may
 * fail even when there is sufficient memory available to complete the append
 * request (but there is not 2*totalLength memory available). So when the
 * doubling fails (because there is not enough memory available), the
 * algorithm requests a smaller amount of memory, which is still enough to
 * cover the request, but which hopefully will be less than the total
 * available memory.
 *
 * The addition of TCL_MIN_GROWTH allows for efficient handling of very
 * small appends. Without this extra slush factor, a sequence of several small
 * appends would cause several memory allocations. As long as
 * TCL_MIN_GROWTH is a reasonable size, we can avoid that behavior.
 *
 * The growth algorithm can be tuned by adjusting the following parameters:
 *
 * TCL_MIN_GROWTH		Additional space, in bytes, to allocate when
 *				the double allocation has failed. Default is
 *				1024 (1 kilobyte).  See tclInt.h.
