Inputs and outputs
seqa sequence of characters
stra string

Word description
Outputs a freshly-allocated string with the same elements as a given sequence, by interpreting the sequence elements as Unicode code points.

This operation is only appropriate if the underlying sequence holds Unicode code points, which is rare unless it is a slice of another string. To convert a sequence of bytes to a string, use the words documented in Encoding and decoding strings.

Throws an error if the sequence contains elements other than integers.
