must_have_filter

Description

Filter for checking that an answer has (or doesn't have) a certain string in it. This can be used to screen answers where you want them in a particular form (e.g., if you allow most functions, but not trig functions in the answer, or if the answer must include some string).

Syntax

must_have_filter(str, yes_no, error_msg)

Params

First argument is the string to have, or not have
Second argument is optional, and tells us whether yes or no
Third argument is the error message to produce (if any).

Returns

a filter ( a subroutine suitable for use in answer evaluators)

Note

If called directly from a pg file, one should also install catch_error_filter as a post-filter


Examples

$new_eval->install_pre_filter(must_have_filter("sin", 'no', "can't use sin() in this answer"));
$new_eval->install_post_filter(~~&catch_errors_filter();
