HIST FIND is a CAOS command that searches the life events for a creature with a given moniker for a given life event type.


Syntax: HIST FIND moniker(str) event_type(integer) from_index(integer)

Searches from the end to the front of the moniker's event list for event_type. It will begin at the life event after from_index; use -1 to find the first occurrence of the event.

Returns the event number if it exists and -1 if it does not.


The Creature History uses it to find the creature's birth event - 'birth' is event type 3:

*where ov01 is the selected creature's moniker
setv va01 hist find ov01 3 -1
