Hi:
I am working on a problem that requires that I find a keyword within a text file. I have tokenized the input and I can easily locate the keyword as an exact token match but if the keyword appears within a token then it is missed.
example:
keyword = mary
File contains "mary had a little lamb". Keyword is found.
File contains "littlemary had a lamb". Keyword is not found.
Can someone please help me solve the problem?
Thanks.

Hi.
If your tokens are Strings (as i would expect them to be) you could use the String.indexOf(...) instead of String.equals(...)
