Description (last modified by petdance) (diff)

Now that we theoretically have immutable strings on trunk, we can constify many STRING * arguments in many functions.

* Parrot_str_concat
* Parrot_str_copy
* Parrot_str_substr
* Parrot_str_replace
* Parrot_str_chopn
* Parrot_str_to_hashval
* Parrot_str_upcase
* Parrot_str_downcase
* Parrot_str_titlecase
* Parrot_str_find_cclass
* Parrot_str_find_not_cclass
* Parrot_str_change_charset
* Parrot_str_change_encoding
* Parrot_str_compose
* Parrot_str_join
* Parrot_str_split

From src/spf_render.c

* handle_flags
* str_concat_w_flags
* Parrot_sprintf_format

The entire file needs some heavy consting on the STRINGs.

Just my $0.02. Biggest opportunity is to change CallContext registers to store constant strings. It will require update of many parts (ops, pmcs, etc) but will give us most const-correctness in strings handling.
