comment Etymology of “String”
@AakashM The OED classes that 1954 under Math., etc. A sequence of symbols or linguistic elements in a definite order, with a first example from a 1932 Symbolic Logic book. They have a separate entry for Computing. A linear sequence of records or data, I've added the first 1956 example to my answer.
