REPEATED SEARCH performs search operations on each string in a LIST.
REPEATED SEARCH can be used to test whether a string starts, ends or contains another string. It can also be used to find the position within the string of the first or last occurrence of the search string. Both the input string and the search string may contain DORs. This will usually be the case. Any LIST DORs in the input string or search text of length greater than one must all be the same length. The output LIST will also be this length. For examples of searching, please see the SCALAR equivalent: SEARCH.
Regular Expressions may also be turned on for use during searching.
