 Removes particular characters from the beginning of a string
------------------------------------------------------------------------------
 Syntax

     REMLEFT(<cString>,[<cCharacter|nCharacter>])
        --> cString

 Arguments

     <cString>  Designates the string that is processed.

     <cCharacter|nCharacter>  Designates the character that is removed
     from the beginning of the <cString>.  The default value is a space,
     CHR(32).

 Returns

     REMLEFT() returns the modified <cString>.

 Description

     REMLEFT() functions exactly like Clipper's LTRIM(), with one
     exception.  While the Clipper function can only remove spaces,
     REMLEFT() can remove any character you choose.  The character that is
     removed can be specified with the <cCharacter|nCharacter> parameter.

 Note

     .  When the <cCharacter|nCharacter> parameter is not specified,
        spaces are removed.

 Examples

     .  Remove the spaces:

        ? REMLEFT("   123   ")            // "123   "

     .  Remove the character ".":

        ? REMLEFT("..123..", ".")         // "123.."
