Synopsis:

$rightw(<count> <word list>)

Technical:

  • If the <count> argument is omitted the empty string is returned.
  • If the <count> argument is less than 1, the empty string is returned.
  • This function returns the last <count> words from <word list>.
  • Remember that <word list> is a list of words.

Practical:

Useful when you want to get the last few words in a word list.

Returns:

The last <count> words from <word list>.

Examples:

$rightw(2 hello there how are you?)         returns "are you?"
$rightw(-1 hello there bob)                 returns nothing
$rightw(7 hello there bob)                  returns "hello there bob"

History:

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