numpy string operations | index() function

numpy.core.defchararray.index(arr, sub, start=0, end=None) is another function for doing string operations in numpy. It returns the lowest index in the string where substring sub is found for each element in arr. It returns value error if sub is not contained within the range [start, end].

Parameters:
arr : array_like of str or unicode.
sub : [str or unicode] The substring which to be searched.
start : [ int, optional] The starting location in each string.
end : [ int, optional] The ending location in each string.

Returns : [ndarray] Output array of int.
