load snip
$_snippy(<end><what><string>)
$snip(<string>)
$rsnip(<string>)
$lsnip(<string>)
$bsnip(<string>)

Description:

The $_snippy() function returns the <string> after all instances of the substring <what> have been removed (“snipped”) from either the start or the end of the string. If <end> is l, then it is removed from the start (“left”) of the string, and if it is r, then it is removed from the end (“right”) of the string.

The $snip() and $rsnip() functions returns the <string> with all of the spaces on the end removed.

The $lsnip() function returns the <string> with all of the spaces at the beginning removed.

The $bsnip() function returns the <string> with all of the spaces at the beginning and at the end removed.
