Subject [jira] Closed: (LANG-566) Replace lastIndexOf methods with -ve index support?
Date Sun, 07 Feb 2010 05:32:28 GMT


Henri Yandell closed LANG-566.

    Resolution: Won't Fix

Thanks for the comment Chandrashekar - exposes this as a mislabeled idea.

That's what Paul and I get for dumping a random idea from a conversation.

The notion is to support negative indices - i.e.   "foo"[-1]   or   "foofoofoo"[3:-4]. 

indexOf is the wrong method though, a negative index doesn't make sense there.

I'm going to close as wontfix. The above two would equal negative handling versions of charAt
and substring, but I don't think it's a needed enough idea.

with lastIndexOf?
