Searches forward for str. Any match is returned by setting
matchStart to the first character of the
matchEnd to the first character after the match. The search will not continue past
limit. Note that a search is a linear or O(n) operation, so you may wish to use limit to avoid
locking up your UI on large buffers.
SourceSearchVisibleOnly flag is present, the match may have invisible text
interspersed in str. i.e. str will be a possibly-noncontiguous subsequence of the matched
range. similarly, if you specify
SourceSearchTextOnly, the match may have pixbufs or child
widgets mixed inside the matched range. If these flags are not given, the match must be exact; the
special 0xFFFC character in str will match embedded pixbufs or child widgets. If you specify the
SourceSearchCaseInsensitive flag, the text will be matched regardless of what case it is in.
textIterForwardSearch, but supports case insensitive searching.
