Codecademy exercises


Unfortunately the exercise to locate and extract a name from a block of text only works if the name begins with a capital letter, and there are no other names beginning with the same letter! Some other method will have to be used to extract specific words from a block of text! Spent over an hour figuring out why I couldn't get my code to work properly.


That depends on how your name was written maybe:

if(text[i].toLowerCaser() === myName[0].toLowerCase())

can solve this issue.

yes. But I guess it's told in the course that this is an issue and the last exercise let's it up to you to fix it or to go on.


Earlier on the course touched on Substring. I used that to extract the exact word, capitals or not.
