String.endsWith(matchStr)

String.endsWith() returns Boolean true if the chained string ends with a specific substring.

For example, if $MyString is "I do not like green eggs and ham":

$MyString.endsWith("ham") returns true

$MyString.endsWith("eggs") returns false

Also, with string literals:

("There are gentlemen now abed.").endsWith("abed") returns true 

("There are gentlemen now abed.").endsWith("night") returns false 

This operator searches for literal strings, not regular expressions. Matches are case sensitive:

("There are gentlemen now abed.").endsWith("Abed") returns false 

See also String.beginsWith(). If you need to search a String for a regular expression, use String.contains().
