*Conan The Librarian
A character substring is a contiguous segment of a character variable, character array element, or character field reference. It has one of the following forms: v([e1]:[e2]) a(s[,s]...)([e1]:[e2]) v Is a character variable name a Is a character array name s Is a subscript expression e1 Is a numeric expression specifying the leftmost character position of the substring e2 Is a numeric expression specifying the rightmost character position of the substring Both e1 and e2 must be within the range 1,2, ..., len, where len is the length of the parent character string. If e1 exceeds e2, the substring has length zero.
