chr2ind(string, i)

Convert a character index to a byte index.


In the Julia programming language, the function chr2ind(string, i) is used to convert a character index to a byte index.


julia> str = "Julia";
julia> chr2ind(str, 3)

In this example, the chr2ind function is used to convert the character index 3 of the string "Julia" to the corresponding byte index 3.

Note: It's important to remember that Julia uses 1-based indexing, so the indices start from 1.

Common mistake example:

julia> str = "Hello";
julia> chr2ind(str, 6)
ERROR: BoundsError: attempt to access 5-element String at index [6]

In this example, the provided character index 6 is out of bounds for the string "Hello". Always ensure that the index is within the valid range of the string before using chr2ind.
