in Javascript, I have something like this:

p = strchr(sString, 64);

doesn't work, I also tried

var p = strchr(sString, 64);

doesn't work either.

Does STRSTR exist in Java ??  Or is there any equivalent ??

thanks.

Java and JavaScript are two different languages.

What exactly does strchr do

I was talking about STRSTR but  I think STRCHR do something similar.

Suppose we have:

p = strstr("Hello!", '!');

P = some pointer to '!' in the first string.

In VB we would say:

p = instr("Hello!", "!")
where p = 6 because VB doesn't return a pointer but a position.

But that's not my concern to me, I only want to check if a car is inside a sentence.

Vinny, Alright, I found it,

The use of ' is forbiden, I must use "

something like:
[RIGHT]
ndx = sometextValue.indexOf("@")

instead of

[WRONG]
ndx = sometextValue.indexOf('@')
or
ndx = sometextValue.indexOf(64)
