String defines two routines that are, more or less, specialized forms of regionMatches(). The startsWith( ) method determines whether a given String begins with a specified string. Conversely, endsWith( ) determines whether the String in question ends with a specified string. They have the following general forms:
boolean startsWith(String str)
boolean endsWith(String str)
Here, str is the String being tested. If the string matches, true is returned. Otherwise, false is returned. For example,
"Foobar".startsWith("Foo") are both true.
A second form of startsWith( ), shown here, lets you specify a starting point:
boolean startsWith(String str, int startIndex)
Here, startIndex specifies the index into the invoking string at which point the search will begin. For example,
"Foobar".startsWith("bar", 3) returns true.
