Otherwise, the result is a non-negative //​[[CL:​Glossary:​integer]]//,​ the index within //​sequence-1//​ of the leftmost or rightmost position, depending on //​from-end//,​ at which the two subsequences fail to match. If one subsequence is shorter than and a matching prefix of the other, the result is the index relative to //​sequence-1//​ beyond the last position tested. + + If //​from-end//​ is //​[[CL:​Glossary:​true]]//,​ then one plus the index of the rightmost position in which the //​sequences//​ differ is returned. In effect, the subsequences are aligned at their right-hand ends; then, the last elements are compared, the penultimate elements, and so on.
