What you could possibly use is built into perl, as near as I can think.  You don't need the mem* functions, the str* functions are all right there (strlen is length,  strcpy is =, strcat is  .=, strcmp is ==, etc.  Anythiing that isn't built in (again, I can't think of anything) could be done quite quickly with regexps.  Were you thinking of something specific, or were you thinking of something like basic_string in STL?

Actually, I was able to find something close to what I was looking for.  Although I didn't have an exact problem, I was attempting to find options similar to splice().
