Merge into article "String (computer science)[edit]

Reason: the text of this article appears to be a subset of the text at String (computer science) anyway, except for the introductory paragraph about Zvi Galil's wording. The latter can easily be added somewhere in String (computer science), it doesn't need an own article duplicating (and doubling the maintenance efford for) large parts of it. - Jochen Burghardt (talk) 05:21, 18 July 2014 (UTC)

A manual comparison found that only this text:

==Stringology==
In formal languages, which are used in mathematical logic and theoretical computer science, stringology deals with algorithms and data structures used for string processing. 
The name was coined in 1984 by computer scientist Zvi Galil.[1]
===See also===

Category:Algorithms on strings

is contained in Stringology, but not in String (computer science). - Jochen Burghardt (talk) 13:10, 11 August 2014 (UTC)

I therefor performed the merge as suggested. - Jochen Burghardt (talk) 13:35, 11 August 2014 (UTC)
