About

Searches key-value tuples, matching key and value with a needle and returns the key-value tuple in a list, where the head element is the key and the tail element is the value.

Comments

  • Requires a needle in needle as a string.
  • Requires key-value data in kvp as a string.
  • Returns a key-value tuple where key is the head element and value is the tail element.

Error Handling

  • Will return the empty string if needle cannot be matched.

Remarks

  • Currently, in order to not rely on Ord, the function splits on ASCII tokens only. That means that for a hay of kvp=love♥you, a call such as wasKeyValueFindTuple("love", kvp), the function will fail to find the tuple.

Example Usage

Suppose that the key-value data contains:

string kvp = "data=empty&movement=off"

when calling the function with:

wasKeyValueGet("move", kvp);

the function will return the list:

[ "movement", "off" ];
