REMLEFT()

REMLEFT()

Remove certain characters at the left of a string

Syntax

       REMLEFT( <cString>, [<cSearch|nSearch>] ) -> cString

Arguments

<cString> Designates the string that is processed.

<cSearch|nSearch> 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 Harbour’s LTRIM(), with one exception. While this Harbour function can only remove spaces, REMLEFT() can remove any character you choose. The character that is removed can be specified with the <cSearch|nSearch> parameter.

Note

. When the <cSearch|nSearch> parameter is not specified, spaces are removed.

Examples

       .  Remove the spaces:
              ? REMLEFT("   123   ")       // "123   "
       .  Remove the character ".":
              ? REMLEFT("..123..", ".")    // "123.."

Compliance

REMLEFT() is compatible with CT3’s REMLEFT().
