Subject [jira] Commented: (LANG-566) Replace lastIndexOf methods with -ve index support?
Date Sun, 03 Jan 2010 07:20:54 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/LANG-566?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=12795956#action_12795956
] 

Paul Benedict commented on LANG-566:
------------------------------------

Anything you can do to the front of the string, you can also do to the end of the string.
I like the negative aspects of this (pun intended), but it doesn't guard against mathematical
mistakes.

> What if StringUtils.indexOf supported -ve indices instead of forcing developers to deal
with lastIndexOf?
