OK I will be the first to admit that I am VERY new to Pythin and
know little of the syntax of this language. I want to perform the
simple task of testing to see if a substring exists within string. I
think the syntax is find(sting,substring) and the return is -1 if the
substirng is not found otherwise the start position of the substring in
the string. is this correct?
Moreover is this code totally screwed?
takeaction = find(stringvar,'LITERALSUB')
if takeaction != -1:
Any help with this is appreciated as I am a total DFU when it
comes to this for now anyway...
