Summary0006597: [PATCH] - Adds osStringStartsWith and osStringEndsWith.
DescriptionAllows scripters to check if a string starts or ends with specified text.

The functions are case sensitive (basically String.StartsWith/EndsWith).

Thought these would be helpful instead of comparing strings using llGetSubString = or != , which would possibly use llStringLength at some point as well.

Both functions return TRUE on match, otherwise FALSE.
Additional InformationosStringStartsWith("my string", "my"); << returns TRUE
osStringStartsWith("my string", "My"); << returns FALSE

osStringEndsWith("my string", "string"); << returns TRUE
osStringEndsWith("my string", "my "); << returns FALSE
TagsNo tags attached.

do you have a couple test scripts to verify that this is working correctly?

    touch(integer t)
        string TestString = "This string is checked at the start and end";
        //The following checks should return true.
        if (osStringStartsWith(TestString, "This")) // note, this is case sensitive
            // This has returned true, so do something
            llOwnerSay("String starts with = true");
        if (osStringEndsWith(TestString, "end")) // note, this is case sensitive
            // This has returned true, so do something
            llOwnerSay("String ends with = true");
        //The following checks should return false.
        if (osStringStartsWith(TestString, "is")) // note, this is case sensitive
            // This has returned true, so do something
            llOwnerSay("String starts with = false");
        if (osStringEndsWith(TestString, "and")) // note, this is case sensitive
            // This has returned true, so do something
            llOwnerSay("String ends with = false");

I did do some tests on these functions, not tried them under loops/stress tests etc, but I would hope that they work correctly, after all, they are built in .net functions that have been wrapped and they haven't been adjusted in anyway internally.

I wont be able to try these functions out again at least until this weekend. Feedback would be helpful if anyone decided to try this patch out in the mean time.

Marking resolved as it's 5 years old and UBit added similar features a few months back in commit 9dfb906666.
