Function Left() Foundation
Extracts part of a character string starting with the first character.
Left( <cString>, <nCount> ) --> cSubString
Left() returns the first <nCount> characters from <cString> as a character string. When <nCount> is less than or equals zero, a null string ("") is returned. When <nCount> is greater than the length of <cString>, <cString> is returned.
The character function Left() extracts part of a character string beginning with the first character. The result is the same as calling SubStr(<cString>, 1, <nCount>). The counterpart to the function Left() is the function Right() which extracts a part of a character string from the end (from the right).
The functions Left(), Right() and SubStr() extract parts of a character string and are often used with the functions At() and RAt() to determine the position of the substring within the character string.
