right$ and right$$   function



Syntax:
subPascalString = right$(PascalString,numChars)
subContainer$$ = right$$(container$$,numChars)


Description:
This function returns a string or container consisting of the rightmost numChars characters of PascalString or container$$. If numChars is greater than the length of PascalString or container$$, the entire PascalString or container$$ is returned. If numChars is less than 1, an empty (zero-length) string is returned.

Note:
You may not use complex expressions that include containers on the right side of the equal sign. Instead of using:
c$$ = c$$ + right$$(a$$,10)
Use:
c$$ += right$$(a$$,10)

Example:
print right$("Nebraska", 3)
program output:
ska
