$pos returns the case-insensitive position of the Nth substring within a text string. $poscs is the case-sensitive version.
$pos(text,substring [,N] ) $poscs(text,substring [,N] )
- text - The string being searched
- substring - The string being searched for within text string
- N - The Nth occurrence of substring being searched for. Default is 1 if parameter not used, you can use N=0 to return the count of string's occurrences.
//echo -a $pos(DEADBEEF,E) returns: 2 (search is case-insensitive) (Default N=1 when 3rd parameter isn't used) //echo -a $pos(DEADBEEF,e,2) returns: 6 //echo -a $pos(DEADBEEF,e,0) returns: 3 (count of letter 'e') //echo -a $pos(deadbeef,db,1) returns: 4 //echo -a $pos(DEADBEEF,x,0) returns: $null (not found) //var %a a $chr(32) b | echo -a The string has length $len(%a) and contains $pos(%a,$chr(32),0) spaces //echo -a The path-less filename is $mid($mircexe, $calc(1+$pos($mircexe,\, $count($mircexe,\) ) ) )
