I would like to check if a certain word exists in a given string.
since I learned to love lists, I used
if myword in mystring:
...didnt work. I have now resorted to
if mystring.find(myword) >1:
is this really the canonical way to check if myword exists in mystring?
it feels somewhat "unpythonic", thats why I'm asking
thanks for any insight you might have
