replace_stringex

Syntax

native replace_stringex(text[], maxlength, const search[], const replace[], searchLen=-1, replaceLen=-1, bool:caseSensitive=true);

Usage

text
String to perform search and replacements on.
maxlength
Maximum length of the string buffer.
search
String to search for.
replace
String to replace the search string with.
searchLen
If higher than -1, its value will be used instead of
a strlen() call on the search parameter.
replaceLen
If higher than -1, its value will be used instead of
a strlen() call on the replace parameter.
caseSensitive
If true (default), search is case sensitive.

Description

Given a string, replaces the first occurrence of a search string with a
replacement string.

Note

Similar to replace() native, but implemented with more options and
with different algorithm. This native doesn't error on bad
buffer size and will smartly cut off the string in a way
that pushes old data out.

Note

Only available in 1.8.3 and above.

Return

Index into the buffer (relative to the start) from where
the last replacement ended, or -1 if no replacements were
made.
