I have a Stata 10 query on string functions. Why is the string function
-index()- no longer available in Stata 10 (as it was in Stata 9 and
several previous versions)? I would be surprised if I couldn't find
substitutes for it on a case-by-case basis, but was there any special
reason for dropping it?

Best wishes
