I'm trying to find the '?' in a variable i got called %topic ,with //echo -a $findtok(%topic,$chr(63),1,32)

$chr(63) standing for ? (questionmark)


the %topic variable contains this;
Next Game: 1:Player1 2:Player2 3:Player3 4:Player4 5:? 6:? 7:? 8:?

Altho i get the msg ->* /echo: insufficient parameters frown
I don't get whats wrong. I'm 100% sure the %topic variable contains the info. i use $chr(63) as token to find ?, 1 for the 1st questionmark, and 32 (space) as token seperator. What can it be?

Thnx in advance

You should use $matchtok, $findtok only finds exact matches.

Try this: $wildtok(%topic,*:?,1,32)

$findtok is used to find the entire token in the string (ie $findtok(a? b? c? d?,c?,1,32) ). Use $matchtok(%topic,?,1,32) instead.

The problem with this is that ? is a wildcard character inside $wildtok(), so it could incorrectly find an entry like 8:a

...although in this case, it may never be encountered
