That's because exactly two matches were found:
piStringSearch[n_, s_, c_] :=
StringPosition[ToString@N[Pi, n], ToString@s, c]
piStringSearch[10^7, "9999998", 100]
% /. {start_, end_} :> start - 2
{{764, 770}, {3062883, 3062889}}
{762, 768}
Do this instead:
piStringSearch[n_, s_, c_] := -2 +
StringPosition[ToString@N[Pi, n], ToString@s, c][[All, 1]]
piStringSearch[10^7, "9999998", 100]
{762, 3062881}
That still fails if NO matches are found, so this is safer than either
method above:
Clear[piStringSearch]
piStringSearch[n_, s_, c_] :=
Replace[StringPosition[ToString@N[Pi, n], ToString@s,
c], {start_, end_} :> start - 2, 1]
piStringSearch[10^7, "9999998", 100]
{762, 3062881}
piStringSearch[10^7, "9999999", 100]
{1722776, 3389380, 4313727, 5466169}
Table[piStringSearch[10^7, "000000" <> ToString@i, 100], {i, 0, 9}]
{{3794572}, {3794573}, {2609392,
7257528}, {}, {}, {1699927}, {}, {}, {2328783}, {}}
piStringSearch[10^7, "000000", 100]
{1699927, 2328783, 2609392, 3794572, 3794573, 7257528}
What is the "leading zeros problem"?
