    Default How to find if a sting contains another string?

    Hi all,

    I cant figure out how to "search" what a sting contains. So say I am using the Scanner command to find user impute. I want to see if what the user typed contains the word "no" or the word "yes"? how would I go about doing that?? I cant find anything in the Java docs... (probibly not looking in the right place lol). All I really need is a command like .contains("yes") or something like that... (if that's it I will kill my self...)(contains doesn't work...) lol

    Thank you all!!

    As a matter of fact, it does: String contains Javadoc

    String s = "hello world!";
    if(s.contains("hello"))
    {
        System.out.println("s contains hello");
    }
