Due to the nature of this problem i have found it really difficult to come up with a search string that brings up any results, so i apologise if this has been answered before.
I am trying to work out a piece of my patch that will get rid of unwanted spaces behind and infront of a message when and IF they exist.
For instance i would like to turn " foo foo" into "foo foo", usually id use sprintf for this sort of thing but i have issues with it when i then try to pass shorter text though the object. For instance after running " foo foo" though then i just run " foo" ill get an output of "foo foo". Ive looked all though the documentation and cant find anything about this.
Is there a better way of getting rid of the space without running into the obvious problems ?
Try using the second outlet of [regexp ^\s*(.*)$]
It ignores any number of blank characters if they’re present at the start of a string and spits out just the bits you need.
Thanks heaps :)
