[bug #62264] string iteration handles escape sequences inconsistently (want `for` request)
Thu, 27 Apr 2023 09:46:25 -0400 (EDT)
Follow-up Comment #2, bug #62264 (project groff):
I had wondered idly if we needed a reverse iterator.
I thought, "surely not".
I'm thinking again.
See bug #64114, where I want to traverse backward along a string and truncate
it (toward the front) upon first hitting a slash.
Another possibility would be to have a node-list reversing request.
But that seems like a dangerous gun to hand the user.
On the other hand you can already suicide as hard as you like by walking
strings/macros/diversions with .substring and mangling them. So...maybe.
