I am searching for a way to do something like "ABC" -> c("A","B","C"). How can this be accomplished?
I tried cut() and split(), but they do something else, it seems.
The purpose for doing this is to find the number of common (and uncommon) characters, i.e. ultimately I want something like this:
c(2,1) # 2 in x are in y, 1 in y is not in x
c(1,2) # 1 in x is in y, 2 in y are not in x
Maybe I even do not need the string splitting?
I hope I was clear in stating my problem.
Thank you for your valuable input,
