sdl_string.lua

	Contains a few convenient string utility functions which are not supported in
	Lua or not supported as intended.

-- Performs a non-pattern based substring search of one string in another
-- string. It's of O(n^2) complexity. It returns nil if the result cannot be
-- found, otherwise it returns the starting index of the first found occurrence.

	local i = 1
	for i = 1, str:len(), 1 do
		if str:sub(i, i) == substr:sub(pos, pos) then

-- This is a public-access version of the explode function defined below.
function explode(str, delim)
	return str:explode(delim)

-- Explodes a string into an array of elements, separated by a non-pattern
-- delimiter. This function is part of the string table, allowing for a
-- member-based invocation for strings.

	return exploded
end

-- Similar to table.concat, except it supports more advanced token pasting. This
-- function is vastly used by the main meta-build script (premake4.lua) to
-- generate all the main lines of code for various tables that need to be in the
-- generated lua file.
--  - tbl: table of values to implode into a string
--  - prefix: string to paste before entire result
--  - pre: string to always paste before each entry in table
--  - post: string to always paste after each entry in table
--  - join: string to paste between entries (inclusive)
--  - suffix: string to paste after entire result
-- Returns the imploded string.

	-- not the most efficient way to do this, but...
