    as to

    (Did the context not offer any clues as to meaning?)

    [Source : https://www.usingenglish.com/forum/a...44003-had.html, #3]

    If I were written the sentence, I would write something like this `Did the context not offer any clues to the meaning'?

    But I can't understand the use of `as to' here. Could you explain that?. Perhaps, few examples of `as to' with this context meaning will help me.
