These procedures are special substring procedures, which can also be
used for replicating strings. They are a bit tricky to use, but
consider this code fragment, which replicates the input string
"foo" so often that the resulting string has a length of six.
(xsubstring "foo" 0 6) => "foofoo"
s is a string, start and end are optional
arguments that demarcate a substring of s, defaulting to
0 and the length of s. Replicate this substring up and
down index space, in both the positive and negative directions.
xsubstring returns the substring of this string
beginning at index from, and ending at to, which
defaults to from + (end - start).
xsubstring, but the extracted text is written into the string target starting at index tstart. The operation is not defined if
(eq? target s)or these arguments share storage - you cannot copy a string on top of itself.
