( #3333=superdoc: print w/ replies, xml ) Need Help??
My current commenting style, although it needs work. You'll have to excuse it's JavaScript-iness, that's all I have handy.
// ======================================================== // COUNT OCCURRENCES ( // STR, // String to search through // SUB // String to search for // ) // -------------------------------------------------------- // Counts the instances of SUB in STR. Counts overlapping // occurrences. Count_Occurrences( 'rrrrr', 'rr') = 4. // -------------------------------------------------------- function Count_Occurrences ( STR, SUB ) { var last = 0; var count = 0; while ((last = STR.indexOf(SUB, last + 1)) > -1) { count++ } return count; }
Update: If you ever spend a year in a country where they don't speak your language, keep a spell checker handy. Alternatively, if my code is used it will only be by non-english speakers, who wouldn't know how to spell 'occurrence' anyway. ;)
