str_match_ind_ic

Returns a list of indexes into an array of strings that contain the given substring (case insensitive).

Available in version 6.0.0 and later.

Prototype

	function str_match_ind_ic (
		string_array [*] : string,  
		sub_string   [1] : string   
	)

	return_val [*] :  integer

Arguments

string_array

A string array of any dimensionality.

sub_string

The substring to be matched.

Description

This function returns an array of indexes where every occurrence of sub_string is matched in string_array. The matching is case insensitive.

If there is no sub_string matched in string_array, the default missing value for an integer will be returned.

Please note, str_match_ind_ic is case insensitive. Use str_match_ind if you need case sensitivity.

  strings = (/"cnLineColor","mpFillColor","xyLineThicknessF","txString", \
              "polyline"/)
  ii = str_match_ind_ic(strings,"Line")
  print(ii)
  print(strings(ii))
