Sometimes you might need to convert a symbol to string (or vice versa) in Emacs Lisp. You start
looking for functions like
string-to-symbol but, alas, they do not seem exist.
Do not despair! Such functions do actually exist, although their names are likely to surprise you:
(symbol-name 'some-symbol) ; => "some-symbol" (intern "some-symbol") ; => some-symbol
