A Strings object in Praat is an ordered list of strings that is most commonly used to represent either lists of files or directories in disk (as returned by the Create Strings as file list... and Create Strings as directory list... standard Praat commands), or the lines of a text file that was read with the Read Strings from raw text file... command.

“strutils” provides some new ways to create Strings (including the possibility of creating an empty Strings object, as well as making fully-specified file and directory lists), and some commands to manipulate existing objects.


Install using CPrAN:

cpran install strutils

You can download an archive of the latest version for manual installation, but you’ll have to also manually install the dependencies yourself. You can manually install the plugin just like any other Praat plugin.
