 +======Synopsis:​======
 +$__substr__(<​substring>​ <search string>)
 +
 +======Technical:​======
 +The <​substring>​ argument is a [[what is a word|dword]] which is unlike most
 +other functions.
 +
 +These functions search for <​substring>​ in <search string> and return the
 +index to it. $[[rsubstr]]() is identical to $__substr__(),​ except it searches from
 +the end to the beginning.
 +
 +======Practical:​======
 +They can be used to search for specific things in output from a server,
 +or as an alternative to $[[match]](*substring* searchstring).
 +
 +======Returns:​======
 +-1 if <​substring>​ not found in <search string> \\
 +index to <​substring>​ in <search string> if found
