 +======Synopsis:​======
 +$__tow__(<​word>​ <word list>)
 +
 +======Technical:​======
 +   * If the <​word>​ argument is omitted this function returns the empty string.
 +   * If <​word>​ is not found in <pattern list>, this function returns the empty string.
 +   * Otherwise, the function behaves "as if" the following had been performed: \\ <val> = findw(<​word>​ <word list>) + 1 \\ <​function_return>​ = leftw(<​val>​ <​word/​pattern list>)
 +   * Remember that <word list> is a list of [[what is a word|words]].
 +
 +======Returns:​======
 +Portion of <word list> before and including a literally matching word.
 +
 +======Examples:​======
 +<​file>​
 +$tow(foobar one two foobar my shoe)    returns "one two foobar"​
 +$tow(booya one two foobar my shoe)     ​returns "" ​ (empty string)
 +</​file>​
 +
 +======History:​======
 +This function first appeared in "plus 2" (post-ircII,​ pre-EPIC)
