# $EPIC: notw.txt,v 1.4 2007/03/02 02:32:04 jnelson Exp $

Synopsis:

$notw(<number> <word list>)

Technical:

  • If the <number> argument is omitted the empty string is returned.
  • If the <number> argument is negative, <word list> is returned.
  • The return value of this function is <word list> with the <number>th word omitted, counting from zero.
  • Extra spaces surrounding the <number>th word will be removed.
  • Remember that <word list> is a list of words.

Practical:

Useful when you want to remove a word from a word list.

Returns:

The <word list> argument without the <number>th word, counting from zero.

Examples:

$notw(0 hello there how are you?)       returns "there how are you?"
$notw(2 hello there how are you?)       returns "hello there are you?"
$notw(-1 hello there how are you?)      returns "hello there how are you?"

History:

This function first appeared in “plus-2” (post-ircII, pre-EPIC)
