instr   function



Syntax:
foundPosition = instr(startPos
  targetPascalString|targetContainer$$
  searchPascalString|searchContainer$$)


Description:
This function searches for the first occurrence of searchPascalString or searchContainer$$ within targetPascalString or targetContainer$$, starting at character position startPos . (If startPos is less than 1, it's treated as 1.) If a match is found, the function returns the character position (1..255) within targetPascalString or targetContainer$$ where the match begins. If no match is found, the function returns zero. The string search is case-sensitive.

Note:
instr always returns zero in these cases:
