    Fix Version/s:     (was: 3.x)

> StringUtils.lastIndexOfAnyBut() function desired
> ------------------------------------------------
>                 Key: LANG-622
>                 URL: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/LANG-622
>             Project: Commons Lang
>          Issue Type: Improvement
>          Components: lang.*
>            Reporter: david cogen
>            Priority: Minor
>             Fix For: 3.0.1
>         Attachments: StringUtilslLastIndexOfAnyButTest.java
> class StringUtils needs the function lastIndexOfAnyBut()
> This would be like indexOfAnyBut() except searches from the end rather than the beginning.
> It would be like lastIndexOfAny() except looks for a character other than those in the string rather than for those in the string.
> This is the only one of the four combinations of "from beginning"/"from end" and "for any"/"for any but" that is not provided.
> Interestingly, the class header doc. mentions "LastIndexOfAnyBut" but the function does not exist - even as a private, as determined by class introspection.
> (This is not a frivolous request. I actually did need this function and ended up having to code a search loop.)
