Idiom #296 Replace last occurrence of substring

Assign to x2 the value of string x with the last occurrence of y replaced by z.
If y is not contained in x, then x2 has the same value as x.

var position = x.lastIndexOf(y).clamp(0, x.length);
var x2 = x.replaceFirst(y, z, position);
  character(len=:), allocatable :: x, x2, y, z

  k = index(x,y,back=.true.)
  if (k > 0) then
     x2 = x(1:k-1) // z // x(k+len(y):)
  else
     x2 = x
  end if
import "strings"
func replaceLast(x, y, z string) (x2 string) {
	i := strings.LastIndex(x, y)
	if i == -1 {
		return x
	}
	return x[:i] + z + x[i+len(y):]
}
StrUtils
  x2 := x;
  p := RPos(y, x);
  if (p > 0) then
  begin
    Delete(x2, p, Length(y));
    Insert(z, x2, p);
  end;
StrUtils
  x2 := ReverseString(StringReplace(ReverseString(x), ReverseString(y), ReverseString(z), []));
x2 = z.join(x.rsplit(y, 1))
x2 = x.gsub(/#{y}(?!.*#{y})/, z )
