Looks for the first match of pattern in the string s. If it finds one, then match returns the captures from the pattern; otherwise it returns nil. If pattern specifies no captures, then the whole match is returned. A third, optional numerical argument init specifies where to start the search; its default value is 1 and can be negative.

(strings) = utf8.match(s,pattern,init)


s: (string)
pattern: (string)
init: (number) optional
