[erlang-questions] How to get strings instead of ints out of this code?

Erlang (BEAM) emulator version 5.6 [smp:2] [async-threads:0]

Eshell V5.6  (abort with ^G)
1> [A,B|T] = "abcdefg".
2> A.
3> B.
4> T.

I know _why_ A. and B. print out as ints and why T. prints out as a string
of characters, how do I get A and B to print out as characters?
