tm_substr Function

tm_substr extracts a substring from a given string by offset and (maximum) length.

tm_substr(string, offset, length)


tm_substr("hello world", 1, 4)

The offset and length are both counted in unicode characters rather than bytes:

tm_substr("🤔🤷", 0, 1)

The offset index may be negative, in which case it is relative to the end of the given string. The length may be -1, in which case the remainder of the string after the given offset will be returned.

tm_substr("hello world", -5, -1)

If the length is greater than the length of the string, the substring will be the length of all remaining characters.

tm_substr("hello world", 6, 10)
