Fast and fastest string building

I'm using the foundation classes and I'm finding their string classes to be very slow when parsing a string into smaller strings.

For an iphone app, what's the best way to speed this up?  Are  there time-tested approaches to this problem?  Any pointers to writing my own class in C, benefits, pitfalls and trusted example code is welcome.  Any or all of the above would be very useful.

Just rememberr Objective-C is a superset to C. Everything you can  do in C can be done in Objective C. So if you insist you can just use plaing char* stuff.
Or anything based upon it.
However is it really that slow? Have you hard figures? if not why not use the convenienses of Objective C? And for parsing Strings maybe you could think about regular expressions for that kind of jobs....
