[Tutor] Iterate over letters in a word

I'm trying to work on some programs to help me understand ciphers and
ultimately cryptography. I've understood so far, that a simple form
of bit-level cryptography is to split the original message into chunks
the same length as a 'key' and then do an xor. I'm trying to keep
this really simple so I can understand from first principles - so eg:
"Hello Tutors!" could be split into:
"Hell" "o Tut" "ors!"
and xor'd with "beer"
I think I understand how xor works (thanks to an earlier post) but I'm
not sure how to iterate over each letter in a string. What is the
recommended way to do this?
