Parameters:
anotherString - the String to compare this String against.
Returns:
true if the argument is not null and the Strings are equal, ignoring case; false otherwise.
Overrides:
equalsIgnoreCase in class XString

compareToIgnoreCase

public int compareToIgnoreCase(XMLString xstr)
Compares two strings lexicographically, ignoring case considerations. This method returns an integer whose sign is that of this.toUpperCase().toLowerCase().compareTo( str.toUpperCase().toLowerCase()).

Note that this method does not take locale into account, and will result in an unsatisfactory ordering for certain locales. The java.text package provides collators to allow locale-sensitive ordering.

Parameters:
xstr - the String to be compared.
Returns:
a negative integer, zero, or a positive integer as the the specified String is greater than, equal to, or less than this String, ignoring case considerations.
Overrides:
compareToIgnoreCase in class XString
Since:
1.2

Collator.compare(String, String)

hashCode

public int hashCode()
Returns a hashcode for this string. The hashcode for a String object is computed as
 s[0]*31^(n-1) + s[1]*31^(n-2) + ... + s[n-1]
 
using int arithmetic, where s[i] is the ith character of the string, n is the length of the string, and ^ indicates exponentiation. (The hash value of the empty string is zero.)
Returns:
a hash code value for this object.
Overrides:
hashCode in class XString

startsWith

public boolean startsWith(XMLString prefix,
                          int toffset)
Tests if this string starts with the specified prefix beginning a specified index.
Parameters:
prefix - the prefix.
toffset - where to begin looking in the string.
Returns:
true if the character sequence represented by the argument is a prefix of the substring of this object starting at index toffset; false otherwise. The result is false if toffset is negative or greater than the length of this String object; otherwise the result is the same as the result of the expression
          this.subString(toffset).startsWith(prefix)
          
Throws:
java.lang.NullPointerException - if prefix is null.
Overrides:
startsWith in class XString

startsWith

public boolean startsWith(XMLString prefix)
Tests if this string starts with the specified prefix.
Parameters:
prefix - the prefix.
Returns:
true if the character sequence represented by the argument is a prefix of the character sequence represented by this string; false otherwise. Note also that true will be returned if the argument is an empty string or is equal to this String object as determined by the equals(Object) method.
Throws:
java.lang.NullPointerException - if prefix is null.
Overrides:
startsWith in class XString
Since:
JDK1. 0

indexOf

public int indexOf(int ch)
Returns the index within this string of the first occurrence of the specified character. If a character with value ch occurs in the character sequence represented by this String object, then the index of the first such occurrence is returned -- that is, the smallest value k such that:
 this.charAt(k) == ch
 
is true. If no such character occurs in this string, then -1 is returned.
Parameters:
ch - a character.
Returns:
the index of the first occurrence of the character in the character sequence represented by this object, or -1 if the character does not occur.
Overrides:
indexOf in class XString

indexOf

public int indexOf(int ch,
                   int fromIndex)
Returns the index within this string of the first occurrence of the specified character, starting the search at the specified index.

If a character with value ch occurs in the character sequence represented by this String object at an index no smaller than fromIndex, then the index of the first such occurrence is returned--that is, the smallest value k such that:

 (this.charAt(k) == ch) && (k >= fromIndex)
 
is true. If no such character occurs in this string at or after position fromIndex, then -1 is returned.

There is no restriction on the value of fromIndex. If it is negative, it has the same effect as if it were zero: this entire string may be searched. If it is greater than the length of this string, it has the same effect as if it were equal to the length of this string: -1 is returned.

Parameters:
ch - a character.
fromIndex - the index to start the search from.
Returns:
the index of the first occurrence of the character in the character sequence represented by this object that is greater than or equal to fromIndex, or -1 if the character does not occur.
Overrides:
indexOf in class XString

substring

public XMLString substring(int beginIndex)
Returns a new string that is a substring of this string. The substring begins with the character at the specified index and extends to the end of this string.

Examples:

 "unhappy".substring(2) returns "happy"
 "Harbison".substring(3) returns "bison"
 "emptiness".substring(9) returns "" (an empty string)
 
Parameters:
beginIndex - the beginning index, inclusive.
Returns:
the specified substring.
Throws:
java.lang.IndexOutOfBoundsException - if beginIndex is negative or larger than the length of this String object.
Overrides:
substring in class XString

substring

public XMLString substring(int beginIndex,
                           int endIndex)
Returns a new string that is a substring of this string. The substring begins at the specified beginIndex and extends to the character at index endIndex - 1. Thus the length of the substring is endIndex-beginIndex.
Parameters:
beginIndex - the beginning index, inclusive.
endIndex - the ending index, exclusive.
Returns:
the specified substring.
Throws:
java.lang.IndexOutOfBoundsException - if the beginIndex is negative, or endIndex is larger than the length of this String object, or beginIndex is larger than endIndex.
Overrides:
substring in class XString

concat

public XMLString concat(java.lang.String str)
Concatenates the specified string to the end of this string.
Parameters:
str - the String that is concatenated to the end of this String.
Returns:
a string that represents the concatenation of this object's characters followed by the string argument's characters.
Throws:
java.lang.NullPointerException - if str is null.
Overrides:
concat in class XString

trim

public XMLString trim()
Removes white space from both ends of this string.
Returns:
this string, with white space removed from the front and end.
Overrides:
trim in class XString

fixWhiteSpace

public XMLString fixWhiteSpace(boolean trimHead,
                               boolean trimTail,
                               boolean doublePunctuationSpaces)
Conditionally trim all leading and trailing whitespace in the specified String. All strings of white space are replaced by a single space character (#x20), except spaces after punctuation which receive double spaces if doublePunctuationSpaces is true. This function may be useful to a formatter, but to get first class results, the formatter should probably do it's own white space handling based on the semantics of the formatting object.
Parameters:
trimHead - Trim leading whitespace?
trimTail - Trim trailing whitespace?
doublePunctuationSpaces - Use double spaces for punctuation?
Returns:
The trimmed string.
Overrides:
fixWhiteSpace in class XString

toDouble

public double toDouble()
Convert a string to a double -- Allowed input is in fixed notation ddd.fff. %OPT% CHECK PERFORMANCE against generating a Java String and converting it to double. The advantage of running in native machine code -- perhaps even microcode, on some systems -- may more than make up for the cost of allocating and discarding the additional object. We need to benchmark this. %OPT% More importantly, we need to decide whether we _care_ about the performance of this operation. Does XString.toDouble constitute any measurable percentage of our typical runtime? I suspect not!
Returns:
A double value representation of the string, or return Double.NaN if the string can not be converted.
Overrides:
toDouble in class XString
