The Serendipity Library includes a stripBlanks function that strips
leading or trailing space characters. It also includes a
justifyString function that allows one to pad a string with leading,
trailing, or centering pad characters. The default pad character is
space, but any character can be specified (eg: "0" for padding
numbers). Altogether the Library includes 45 Transcript commands for
database operations, date manipulation, input editing & validation,
text & number formatting, and list & table operations.
The Library is available on a pre-release basis. The functionality
is basically in place: completion of the documentation is all that is
holding up official release. AND, thanks to Yves Coppé, there is a
French language translation file of all Library messages & prompts
available. (Spanish & Dutch versions are also available, and someone
is working on a German translation.)
If you would like to review the Library prerelease, which will be
available for royalty-free distribution upon official release,
contact me privately.
