Method XbpMLE():delete() Foundation

Deletes characters at a specific position in the edit buffer.

:delete( <nPos>, <nChars> ) --> nDeletedChars
<nPos> is a numeric value specifying the start position in the edit buffer where <nChars> characters are to be deleted.
<nChars> is a numeric value specifying the number of characters to delete.

This method returns a numeric value indicating the number of characters actually deleted.


The method :delete() allows the edit buffer of the XbpMLE object to be directly manipulated and specific characters to be deleted. The start position and number of characters are specified (similar to the function Stuff() that deletes a specific number of characters from a specific place in a character string).
