       the strong force) in a manner consistent with quantum

5. The Free On-line Dictionary of Computing (18 March 2015)
string

    A sequence of data values, usually bytes,
   which usually stand for characters (a "character string").
   The mapping between values and characters is determined by
   the character set which is itself specified implcitly or
   explicitly by the environment in which the string is being
   interpreted.

   The most common character set is ASCII but, since the late
   1990s, there has been increased interest in larger character
   sets such as Unicode where each character is represented by
   more than eight bits.

   Most programming languages consider strings (e.g.
   "124:shabooya:\n", "hello world") basically distinct from
   numbers which are typically stored in fixed-length binary or
   floating-point representation.

   A bit string is a sequence of bits.
