POSINS()

POSINS()

Insert characters at a certain position within a string

Syntax

       POSINS( <cString>, <cInsert>, [<nPosition>] ) 
                -> cString

Arguments

<cString> Designates the character string into which characters are inserted.

<cInsertstring> Designates the new characters that are inserted into <cString>.

<nPosition> Designates the position where the new characters are inserted within <cString>. The default value inserts the characters in front of the last character.

Returns

POSINS() returns the string with the inserted characters.

Description

You can use POSINS() to insert characters into an existing character string. The <cInsertstring> characters are inserted into the <cString> at the location specified by <nPosition>.

Note

. The resulting character string is longer than the original, so this function cannot be called by reference.

Examples

       .  Insert "123" at position 2:
              ? POSINS("abcdefgh", "123", 2)   // "a123bcdefgh"
           .  Insert "123" at position 8:
              ? POSINS("abcdefgh", "123", 8)   // "abcdefg123h"
           .  Give an erroneous position:
              ? POSINS("abcdefgh", "123", 10)  // "abcdefgh"
