tow

# $EPIC: tow.txt,v 1.5 2007/03/02 02:32:04 jnelson Exp $

Synopsis:

$tow(<word> <word list>)

Technical:

  • If the <word> argument is omitted this function returns the empty string.
  • If <word> is not found in <pattern list>, this function returns the empty string.
  • Otherwise, the function behaves “as if” the following had been performed:
    <val> = findw(<word> <word list>) + 1
    <function_return> = leftw(<val> <word/pattern list>)
  • Remember that <word list> is a list of words.

Returns:

Portion of <word list> before and including a literally matching word.

Examples:

$tow(foobar one two foobar my shoe)    returns "one two foobar"
$tow(booya one two foobar my shoe)     returns ""  (empty string)

History:

This function first appeared in “plus 2” (post-ircII, pre-EPIC)
