Search for a sub string in a string.

(const string[],const sub[],bool:ignorecase=false,pos=0)
const string[]The string you want to search in (haystack).
const sub[]The string you want to search for (needle).
ignorecase (optional)When set to true, the case doesn't matter - HeLLo is the same as Hello. When false, they're not the same.
Position (optional)The offset to start searching from.

Return Values:

The number of characters before the sub string (the sub string's start position) or -1 if it's not found.

Example Usage:

if(strfind("Are you in here?", "you", true) != -1) //returns 4, because the start of 'you' (y) is at index 4 in the string
    SendClientMessageToAll(0xFFFFFFFF, "I found you!");
