HI all ,

I am little confused about this method find(int startindex) used in Java Regex.

It means matching will start at the start index given (from input string)
but what happens at the next find.
foreg.
While(find(4))
{
//start looking from 4th index
//do something
}
After first iteration ,will it start from 0 or increment automatically from 4.

It uses the index, so it starts at position 4 again.
