indexOf

indexOf(source: text, pattern: text) 🡒 number, pure function

Returns the index of the first occurrence of the pattern within the text, or −1, if no such occurrence is found.

Example:

source = "Hello World!"
show summary "" a1c3 with
  indexOf(source, "o")
  indexOf(source, "!")
  indexOf(source, "Z")

The index value returned by indexOf is frequently intended to be later consumed by the function substr.
