TCore_String is an efficient and flexible string container. You can do fairly obvious operations with it. Much of tornado uses this object, as it is a language and character set independent container.

Literal strings are arrays of eight bit characters on most compilers - however, Tornado is multilingual so tornado programs cannot use literal strings directly. As you will notice in existing tornado code, literal strings are used but they are always converted to a TCore_String at the very least (and this is for non interface strings). All strings that may be shown to the user should be sent through TInternational_MapString(), so that they may be converted into a different language if necessary.
