C# Language Checking if one array contains another array


Example

public static class ArrayHelpers
{
    public static bool Contains<T>(this T[] array, T[] candidate)
    {
        if (IsEmptyLocate(array, candidate))
            return false;

        if (candidate.Length > array.Length)
            return false;

        for (int a = 0; a <= array.Length - candidate.Length; a++)
        {
            if (array[a].Equals(candidate[0]))
            {
                int i = 0;
                for (; i < candidate.Length; i++)
                {
                    if (false == array[a + i].Equals(candidate[i]))
                        break;
                }
                if (i == candidate.Length)
                    return true;
            }
        }
        return false;
    }

    static bool IsEmptyLocate<T>(T[] array, T[] candidate)
    {
        return array == null
            || candidate == null
            || array.Length == 0
            || candidate.Length == 0
            || candidate.Length > array.Length;
    }
}

/// Sample

byte[] EndOfStream = Encoding.ASCII.GetBytes("---3141592---");
byte[] FakeReceivedFromStream = Encoding.ASCII.GetBytes("Hello, world!!!---3141592---");
if (FakeReceivedFromStream.Contains(EndOfStream))
