TS JS Deno

Creates a new string with the results of calling a provided function on every character in the calling string.

Use String.prototype.split('') and to call the provided function, fn, for each character in str. Use Array.prototype.join('') to recombine the array of characters into a string. The callback function, fn, takes three arguments (the current character, the index of the current character and the string mapString was called upon).

const mapString = (str: string, fn: MapFunc<string>) => {
const chars = [...str];
return, i) => fn(c, i, chars)).join("");
mapString("lorem ipsum", (c) => c.toUpperCase()); // 'LOREM IPSUM'
