in thread Jargon relating to Perl strings

If you (initially, and perhaps always) limit the discussion to abstract strings alone,

This reference will primarily be used when reporting instances of The Unicode Bug. The need for terms for the internals is inevitable as the respondent is sure to bring them into the discussion.

Your passage would be great in documentation, but it does not serve my needs.

Unicode recognizes only two abstractions: code points and grapheme sequences.

I specifically avoided touching Unicode. Unicode has well defined terms, and the conversations in which they would be used differ from the conversations in which those I listed would be used.

[LanX]: 20 years ago traders were complaining about the latency of the trading system...
[ambrus]: I'm currently in the process of rewriting my proof of concept programs. They sort of developped organically as I was experimenting, so now I've got an ugly mess of multiple programs and one-liners held together by nothing. I'll have to rewrite them to som
[ambrus]: ething that's both cleanly organized and mostly automated.
LanX in train, bad connection
[Corion]: ambrus: Yeah - we're in that situation too, except that there is no time to do the reorganizing :-/
[LanX]: ... so my boss started a project with the newest sun servers and invited the traders to come on weekend to test it... and they were so pleased, that they forced him to keep it in production...
[ambrus]: Corion: sure, this is the long-term plan. The short term is that I have to run this ungodly mess to get results from the new input data today.
