--  This package contains the search functions from Ada.Strings.Fixed. They
--  are separated out because they are shared by Ada.Strings.Bounded and
--  Ada.Strings.Unbounded, and we don't want to drag other irrelevant stuff
--  from Ada.Strings.Fixed when using the other two packages. We make this
--  a private package, since user programs should access these subprograms
--  via one of the standard string packages.
