DESCRIPTION
       The QStringList class provides a list of strings.

       It is used to store and manipulate strings that logically belong together. Essentially
       QStringList is a QValueList of QString objects. Unlike QStrList, which stores pointers to
       characters, QStringList holds real QString objects. It is the class of choice whenever you
       work with Unicode strings. QStringList is part of the Qt Template Library.

       Like QString itself, QStringList objects are implicitly shared, so passing them around as
       value-parameters is both fast and safe.

       Strings can be added to a list using append(), operator+=() or operator<<(), e.g.

	   QStringList fonts;
	   fonts.append( "Times" );
	   fonts += "Courier";
	   fonts += "Courier New";
	   fonts << "Helvetica [Cronyx]" << "Helvetica [Adobe]";

       String lists have an iterator, QStringList::Iterator(), e.g.

	   for ( QStringList::Iterator it = fonts.begin(); it != fonts.end(); ++it ) {
	       cout << *it << ":";
	   }
	   cout << endl;
	   // Output:
	   //  Times:Courier:Courier New:Helvetica [Cronyx]:Helvetica [Adobe]:

       Many Qt functions return string lists by value; to iterate over these you should make a
       copy and iterate over the copy.

       You can concatenate all the strings in a string list into a single string (with an
       optional separator) using join(), e.g.

	   QString allFonts = fonts.join( ", " );
	   cout << allFonts << endl;
	   // Output:
	   //  Times, Courier, Courier New, Helvetica [Cronyx], Helvetica [Adobe]

       You can sort the list with sort(), and extract a new list which contains only those
       strings which contain a particular substring (or match a particular regular expression)
       using the grep() functions, e.g.

	   fonts.sort();
	   cout << fonts.join( ", " ) << endl;
	   // Output:
	   //  Courier, Courier New, Helvetica [Adobe], Helvetica [Cronyx], Times
	   QStringList helveticas = fonts.grep( "Helvetica" );
	   cout << helveticas.join( ", " ) << endl;
	   // Output:
	   //  Helvetica [Adobe], Helvetica [Cronyx]

       Existing strings can be split into string lists with character, string or regular
       expression separators, e.g.

	   QString s = "Red\tGreen\tBlue";
	   QStringList colors = QStringList::split( "\t", s );
	   cout << colors.join( ", " ) << endl;
	   // Output:
	   //  Red, Green, Blue

MEMBER FUNCTION DOCUMENTATION
QStringList::QStringList ()
       Creates an empty string list.

QStringList::QStringList ( const QStringList & l )
       Creates a copy of the list l. This function is very fast because QStringList is implicitly
       shared. In most situations this acts like a deep copy, for example, if this list or the
       original one or some other list referencing the same shared data is modified, the
       modifying list first makes a copy, i.e. copy-on-write. In a threaded environment you may
       require a real deep copy

QStringList::QStringList ( const QValueList<QString> & l )
       Constructs a new string list that is a copy of l.

QStringList::QStringList ( const QString & i )
       Constructs a string list consisting of the single string i. Longer lists are easily
       created as follows:

	   QStringList items;
	   items << "Buy" << "Sell" << "Update" << "Value";

QStringList::QStringList ( const char * i )
       Constructs a string list consisting of the single Latin-1 string i.

QStringList QStringList::fromStrList ( const QStrList & ascii ) [static]
       Converts from an ASCII-QStrList ascii to a QStringList (Unicode).

QStringList QStringList::grep ( const QString & str, bool cs = TRUE ) const
       Returns a list of all the strings containing the substring str.

       If cs is TRUE, the grep is done case-sensitively; otherwise case is ignored.

	   QStringList list;
	   list << "Bill Gates" << "John Doe" << "Bill Clinton";
	   list = list.grep( "Bill" );
	   // list == ["Bill Gates", "Bill Clinton"]

       See also QString::find().

QStringList QStringList::grep ( const QRegExp & rx ) const
       This is an overloaded member function, provided for convenience. It behaves essentially
       like the above function.

       Returns a list of all the strings that match the regular expression rx.

       See also QString::find().

QStringList &; QStringList::gres ( const QString & before, const QString & after, bool cs = TRUE )

       Replaces every occurrence of the string before in the strings that constitute the string
       list with the string after. Returns a reference to the string list.

       If cs is TRUE, the search is case sensitive; otherwise the search is case insensitive.

       Example:

	   QStringList list;
	   list << "alpha" << "beta" << "gamma" << "epsilon";
	   list.gres( "a", "o" );
	   // list == ["olpho", "beto", "gommo", "epsilon"]

       See also QString::replace().

QStringList &; QStringList::gres ( const QRegExp & rx, const QString & after )
       This is an overloaded member function, provided for convenience. It behaves essentially
       like the above function.

       Replaces every occurrence of the regexp rx in the string with after. Returns a reference
       to the string list.

       Example:

	   QStringList list;
	   list << "alpha" << "beta" << "gamma" << "epsilon";
	   list.gres( QRegExp("^a"), "o" );
	   // list == ["olpha", "beta", "gamma", "epsilon"]

       For regexps containing capturing parentheses, occurrences of &#92;1, &#92;2, ..., in after
       are replaced with rx.cap(1), cap(2), ...

       Example:

	   QStringList list;
	   list << "Bill Clinton" << "Gates, Bill";
	   list.gres( QRegExp("^(.*), (.*)$"), "\\2 \\1" );
	   // list == ["Bill Clinton", "Bill Gates"]

       See also QString::replace().

QString QStringList::join ( const QString & sep ) const
       Joins the string list into a single string with each element separated by the string sep
       (which can be empty).

       See also split().

       Examples:

void QStringList::sort ()
       Sorts the list of strings in ascending case-sensitive order.

       Sorting is very fast. It uses the Qt Template Library's efficient HeapSort implementation
       that has a time complexity of O(n*log n).

       If you want to sort your strings in an arbitrary order consider using a QMap. For example
       you could use a QMap<QString,QString> to create a case-insensitive ordering (e.g. mapping
       the lowercase text to the text), or a QMap<int,QString> to sort the strings by some
       integer index, etc.

       Example: themes/themes.cpp.

QStringList QStringList::split ( const QRegExp & sep, const QString & str, bool allowEmptyEntries
       = FALSE ) [static]
       Splits the string str into strings wherever the regular expression sep occurs, and returns
       the list of those strings.

       If allowEmptyEntries is TRUE, a null string is inserted in the list wherever the separator
       matches twice without intervening text.

       For example, if you split the string "a,,b,c" on commas, split() returns the three-item
       list "a", "b", "c" if allowEmptyEntries is FALSE (the default), and the four-item list
       "a", "", "b", "c" if allowEmptyEntries is TRUE.

       If sep does not match anywhere in str, split() returns a single element list with the
       element containing the single string str.

       See also join() and QString::section().

       Examples:

QStringList QStringList::split ( const QString & sep, const QString & str, bool allowEmptyEntries
       = FALSE ) [static]
       This is an overloaded member function, provided for convenience. It behaves essentially
       like the above function.

       This version of the function uses a QString as separator, rather than a regular
       expression.

       If sep is an empty string, the return value is a list of one-character strings: split(
       QString( "" ), "four" ) returns the four-item list, "f", "o", "u", "r".

       If allowEmptyEntries is TRUE, a null string is inserted in the list wherever the separator
       matches twice without intervening text.

       See also join() and QString::section().

QStringList QStringList::split ( const QChar & sep, const QString & str, bool allowEmptyEntries =
       FALSE ) [static]
       This is an overloaded member function, provided for convenience. It behaves essentially
       like the above function.

       This version of the function uses a QChar as separator, rather than a regular expression.

       See also join() and QString::section().
