What is a "string" ?
If you are using C as language, this is a particularly valid question, since
the output can be larger than the input in general, so you will be resorted
to add a maximum length parameter, or allowing realloc() which means that
the strings are required to be malloc'ed on first place.
As a result, your strings are likely to be some stuctures.
Then, it is pretty easy to add some s_valid flag, and you are done.
