OK, let's say I have three strings. Str1="abc". Str2="abcd". Str3="efgh".

I want to compare Str1 and Str2 in such a way that R detects that Str2 indeed contains Str1. I want something that returns a "TRUE" value. Then I want to compare Str1 and Str3 so that R detects that Str3 does not contain Str1. I don't want it to give me an error because it can't find Str1. I just want to get a "FALSE" value. Is there a way to do this that's less messy than what I came up with? Thanks again. mailing list PLEASE do read the posting guide and provide commented, minimal, self-contained, reproducible code.
