— Functions aren't THAT cheap in JS apparently


I personally only use lambdas for one liners, but aside from that why not just use one of the string search builtins?

— Yup they are slow to start

— I always try to avoid extra function calls except when writing IOC code

— IOC?

— Right, but I guess he wanted all instances of the substring?

— :(

— This can be done with regular expressions and match

— No array splitting needed
