strsub

strsub — Extract a substring

Description

Return a substring of the source string. strsub runs at init time only.

Syntax

Sdst strsub Ssrc[, istart[, iend]]

Initialization

istart (optional, defaults to 0) -- start position in Ssrc, counting from 0. A negative value means the end of the string.

iend (optional, defaults to -1) -- end position in Ssrc, counting from 0. A negative value means the end of the string. If iend is less than istart, the output is reversed.

Examples

Here is an example of the strsub opcode. It uses the file strsub.csd.
