match() Vs. search()
The search() method is used when we need to find the index of first match. Whereas the match() method is used when we need to find all matches in the form of arrays where each elements indicates to each match. For example:
The g in /is/g stands for global is a regular expression modifier, used to find all matches.
Basically, when our approach is only to check if a search pattern is available in the string?
Then use search() method. Otherwise use match() method.
The search() method does the job faster than match() because it stops after the first match, whereas match() continue searching for all matches.
