7.1.5.5 $Find

$F[IND] ( expr1 , expr2 )

This form searches for the leftmost occurrence of the value of expr2 in the value of expr1. If none is found, $Find returns zero. If one is found, the value returned is the integer representing the number of the character position immediately to the right of the rightmost character of the found occurrence of expr2 in expr1. In particular, if the value of expr2 is empty, $Find returns 1.

$F[IND] ( expr1 , expr2 , intexpr )

Let a be the value of expr1, let b be the value of expr2, and let m be the value of intexpr. $Find(a,b,m) searches for the leftmost occurrence of b in a, beginning the search at the max(m,1) position of a. Let p be the value of the result of $Find($Extract(a,m,$Length(a)),b). If no instance of b is found (i.e., p=0), $Find returns the value 0; otherwise, $Find(a,b,m) = p + max(m,1) - 1.
