Subject [jira] [Commented] (LANG-1046) containsPattern method for StringUtils?
Date Thu, 12 Mar 2015 15:15:39 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/LANG-1046?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=14358802#comment-14358802
] 

Sebb commented on LANG-1046:
----------------------------

The string "alphabet" matches "alpha.*" and starts with "alph.".
Both of these are supported. They are anchored to the start of the string.

It also contains "ph.b", but matching this is not directly supported.

> The JVM Matcher class only supports anchored matches.
> It might perhaps be useful to add a containsPattern(CharSequence input, String pattern)
method that returns true if the input contains the pattern.
