Chop - Maple Help

StringTools

 Chop
 remove the last character of a string

 Calling Sequence Chop( s )

Parameters

 s - Maple string

Description

 • The Chop(s) command returns a copy of input string s with the last character removed, if the string is nonempty. As a special case, the empty string is returned unchanged.
 Note: This function is similar to the Perl function of the same name.
 • Compare this procedure with the other perl-esque routine StringTools[Chomp], which removes only line ending characters.
 • All of the StringTools package commands treat strings as (null-terminated) sequences of $8$-bit (ASCII) characters.  Thus, there is no support for multibyte character encodings, such as unicode encodings.

Examples

 > $\mathrm{with}\left(\mathrm{StringTools}\right):$
 > $\mathrm{Chop}\left("abc"\right)$
 ${"ab"}$ (1)
 > $\mathrm{Chop}\left("This is a test.\n"\right)$
 ${"This is a test."}$ (2)
 > $\mathrm{Chop}\left(""\right)$
 ${""}$ (3)
