Substr

substr turns the given value into a String and then takes a substring from the integer start position (the first character in a string is position 0) to the end of the string or - if an optional length parameter is provided - of length characters.


Usage:


String.substr(start[,length])

Or

substr(String,start[,length])


Returns:


String:        The substring represented from the start point of the source string containing the rest of the string or length characters.



Example:


set a = "Hello There";

echo ${a.substr(0,5)};        // echoes "Hello"

echo ${a.substr(6)};                  // echoes "There"
