29 3.5.7 xf:substring
30 3.5.7.1 Signature
31 xf:substring(string $sourceString, decimal $startingLoc) => string
32
33 xf:substring(string $sourceString, decimal $startingLoc, decimal $length) => string
34
35 3.5.7.2 Parameters
36 $sourceString static type is string
37 $startingLoc static type is decimal. The effective value is computed as cast as
38 unsignedInt(floor($startingLoc)).
39 $length static type is decimal. The effective value is computed as cast as
40 unsignedInt(floor($length)).
41
42 3.5.7.3 Semantics
43 Returns the portion of the value of $sourceString beginning at the position indicated by the value
44 of $startingLoc and continuing for the number of characters indicated by the value of $length.
45
46 If $length is not specified, then the substring identifies characters to the end of $sourceString.
47
48 The value of $length can be greater than the number of characters in the value of $sourceString
49 following the beginning position, in which case the substring identifies characters to the end of
50 $sourceString.
51
52 The first character of a string is located at position 1 (not position 0).
53
54 3.5.7.4 Examples
55 xf:substring("motor car", 6) returns " car".
56
57 xf:substring("metadata", 4, 3) returns "ada".
