At()

 

AT()

Locates the position of a substring in a main string.

Syntax

      AT( <cSearch>, <cString>, [<nStart>], [<nEnd>] ) --> nPos

Arguments

<cSearch> Substring to search for

<cString> Main string

<nStart> First position to search in cString, by default 1

<nEnd> End position to search, by default cString length

Returns

AT() return the starting position of the first occurrence of the substring in the main string

Description

This function searches the string <cString> for the characters in the first string <cSearch>. If the substring is not contained within the second expression, the function will return 0. The third and fourth parameters lets you indicate a starting and end offset to search in.

Examples

      ? 'At( "cde", "abcdefgfedcba" ) = ' +;
         At( "cde", "abcsefgfedcba" )

Compliance

This function is sensitive to HB_CLP_STRICT settings during the compilation of src/rtl/at.c

<nStart> and <nEnd> are Harbour extensions and do not exist if HB_CLP_STRICT is defined. In that case, the whole string is searched.
