Subject: Re: [std-proposals] String contains member function

Another difference, except for theoretical implementation complexity, could be: “set::contains” provides single-element lookup mechanism while the semantics for the proposed “string::contains” is related to a continuous segment of multiple elements with a specific order.

On the other hand, even we could come up with a good name, I think a convincing motivation usually has more priority than concrete design. Therefore, more investigation about motivation around the previous comments may be necessary.

What about std::unordered_map::contains then?
