[REBOL] Re: [Find] Frustration with Find

I think the issue is that matching the tail of a string is not the same as not matching any part of it. (find "abcde" "x") = tail "abcde" So find can't return any part of the string in the case of a failure. Hence the none as the response. If you do want to position at the tail of the string when not found, you could make a function out of this: str: "abcde" either temp: find head str "c" [str: temp] [str: tail str] (You won't want the 'head if you want to search from the current position) Sunanda.
