findw

# $EPIC: findw.txt,v 1.2 2006/08/01 02:45:08 sthalik Exp $

Synopsis:

$findw(<word> <wordlist>)

Technical:

This function searches <wordlist> for <word> and returns the place it was found. If <word> isn't in <wordlist>, -1 is returned.

Practical:

This function should put many scripters to ease, as it has been written into many scripts :)

Returns:

index to <word> in <wordlist>

Examples:

$findw(very epic is a very scriptable client)         /* returns 3 */

assign test blah hmm foo bar
eval echo $word($findw(hmm $test) $test)              /* returns "hmm" */
