grep.vec(pattern.vec, x, operator="AND")

grepvec( pattern.vec, x, operator="AND", value=FALSE)

grep_leading( pattern, x, value=FALSE )

grepvec_leading( patternvec, x, value=FALSE )

Arguments

pattern.vec

String which should be looked for in vector x

x

A character vector

operator

An optional string. The default argument "AND" searches all entries in x which contain all elements of pattern.vec. If operator is different from the default, then the "OR" logic applies, i.e. the functions searches for vector entries which contain at least one of the strings in pattern.vec.

pattern

String

patternvec

Vector of strings

value

Logical indicating whether indices or values are requested
