In Lecture: Documents: Scalar Value Types, he keeps referring to Strings as “Scalar” types. But how does that make any sense? A scalar should be able to scale something. I can multiply a number by 5, but I can’t multiply a number by “apple”.
This CSSE answer suggests that strings are not scalar: https://cs.stackexchange.com/questions/47237/are-strings-scalar
Am I right in thinking that the correct term here is a “Primitive” data type?
