Henri Yandell updated LANG-622:

    Fix Version/s: 3.1

Seems good - putting in 3.1 as no patches currently. Patches welcome for anyone who wants
to work on it.

> class StringUtils needs the function lastIndexOfAnyBut()
> This would be like indexOfAnyBut() except searches from the end rather than the beginning.
> It would be like lastIndexOfAny() except looks for a character other than those in the
string rather than for those in the string.
> This is the only one of the four combinations of "from beginning"/"from end" and "for
any"/"for any but" that is not provided.
> Interestingly, the class header doc. mentions "LastIndexOfAnyBut" but the function does
not exist - even as a private, as determined by class introspection.
> (This is not a frivolous request. I actually did need this function and ended up having
to code a search loop.)
