findChildren (opposite of closest)

I had to use a function which looks up an element matched by an expression inside a targetElement. So something like the opposite of closest(). Because i did not find a function for that in the jQuery-Framework i wrote some snippet my self: jquerySorter = { findChildren: function(start, match){


return jquerySorter.findChildren($(start).children('*'), match);

} else {

return $(start).children(match);




This is a Part of the complete SortingPlugin i wrote. I hope this helps to implement a function which is like the opposite of closest, because i think lots of poeple need this.

This doesn't seem common enough to put into core, but can easily be done inline or via a plugin.
