Function

NSRangeFromString

Returns a range from a textual representation.

Declaration

NSRange NSRangeFromString(NSString *aString);

Discussion

Scans aString for two integers which are used as the location and length values, in that order, to create an NSRange struct. If aString only contains a single integer, it is used as the location value. If aString does not contain any integers, this function returns an NSRange struct whose location and length values are both 0.
