Subject [jira] [Created] (LANG-1281) Javadoc of StringUtils.ordinalIndexOf is contradictory.
Date Thu, 03 Nov 2016 14:57:58 GMT
Andreas Lundblad created LANG-1281:

             Summary: Javadoc of StringUtils.ordinalIndexOf is contradictory.
                 Key: LANG-1281
             Project: Commons Lang
          Issue Type: Bug
          Components: lang.*
    Affects Versions: 3.5
            Reporter: Andreas Lundblad
            Priority: Minor

Javadoc of StringUtils.ordinalIndexOf states the following:

"The code increments the starting index by one, rather than by the length of the match string,
so matches may overlap."

But then gives the following example:

StringUtils.ordinalIndexOf("aabaabaa", "", 2) = 0

which clearly indicates that it does *not* increment the starting index by one in case of
the empty string.
