Good morning,

Suppose in a subfile app I want to list only the entries that contain a 
specific string value and filter out all others. For example, I want to list 
only the customers that have "JOHN" in their name.

The search-argument is "JOHN" and the application needs to display "JOHN 
SMITH", "BIG-JOHN", "SALLY JOHNSON". Suppose the Customer Name is 30 bytes 
long. How do I construct an INSPECT operation so that it looks at the customer 
name for the string "JOHN" without including the 26 blanks?

Cheers. -- Jay
