I’ve tried string.match, but to no avail
Essentially I want to return the string searched for if the string that starts with it matches
so if I searched
and I was searching through a12 , a1 would return a12 since it’d match
local var = "sillystring" local pattern = some pattern string.match( var, pattern )
I know string.match won’t work even if I had a proper pattern since I’d have to customize my search requests with that search I defined, ie a12
anyway, does such functionality exist?
