Classes for mimicking string behavior

Project Description

Provides a StringLike class that adds the behavior of Python’s built-in string to its children. This is useful when you want to implement a class that behaves like a string but encapsulates some additional functionality that a normal string doesn’t provide.

Additionally provides LazyString and CachedLazyString classes which behave exactly like strings but allow strings to be constructed in a thunk (i.e. lazily) instead of strictly (i.e. immediately).

An example of how it can be used:
