|How can I limit the length a piece of text?|
Is there a simple command for this?
|I have a neat little RSS feed parser (using Magpie) that works...|
But I want to limit the number of characters of a particular element. Can someone point to me to a php command that does this? I'm a novice.
Never mind - I figure it out:
You mean something like a substring [php.net]?
one minute too slow ;)
Ah, but does anyone have a neat trick to truncate only on a whitespace after a certain number of characters?
I'll be working on a brute-force subroutine to do this, but thought I'd ask in case someone's got a fancy regexp trick or something.
$string = "Your feed string here";
$max = 100;
That will truncate on the first whitespace found starting at the 100th position.
