Function

Extracts some characters or words from a string.

Result

Standard DOS return codes.

Notes

    Both  CHAR  (character)  and WORD arguments allow to define a begin and an end
    position  in the original string. Words are strings separated by a SEPARATOR (a
    space character (" ") is the default), which can also be a string.

    Positions  range  is specified using numbers with the form "P1-P2", where "P1"
    is  the position of the first character (resp. word) to extract in the original
    string, "-" is the hyphen-minus character, and "P2" is the position of the last
    character (resp. word) to extract.

    If  only  one  position  is  supplied, then only one character (resp. word) is
    extracted,  unless  the  hyphen-minus  character is supplied too: P- extracts a
    string  begining  at  the  character (resp. word) at position P in the original
    string until the end, and -P extracts a string starting at the beginning of the
    original  string,  and  ending with the character (resp. word) at position P in
    the original string.

EXAMPLES

    Example 1:
    > Cut "A dummy sentence" CHAR 7
    y
    extract one character.

    Example 2:
    > Cut "A dummy sentence" CHAR 6-12
    my sent
    extract from character 6 to 12.

    Example 3:
    > Cut "A dummy sentence" CHAR -7
    A dummy
    extract from character 1 to 7 without specifying the beginning position.

    Example 4:
    > Cut "A dummy sentence" CHAR 12-
    tence
    extract from character 12 of the string until the end.

    Example 5:
    > Cut "A dummy sentence" WORD 2 SEPARATOR "en"
    t
    extract the second word (using an user-defined separator).
