STREXTRACT()

Posted on July 31, 2004. Filed under: Visual FoxPro |

I’m almost too embarassed to mention this…
I found a VFP function STREXTRACT() for extracting text from a string.
Yep, I have the following code all over the place:

nStart = AT(‘Starting text’, cString)
nEnd = AT(‘End text’, cString)
cSubString = SUBSTR(cString, nStart, nEnd – nStart)

which can now be replaced with:
cSubString = STREXTRACT(cString, ‘Starting text’, ‘End text’)
