in reply to Oneliner with substring trimming and padding

What about the following approach:

  1. adding a "maximum number" of padding-characters at the end of your substring
  2. cutting the substing back to the desired number of characters
That way you avoid calculating the real number of needed padding-characters

Just an idea. Rata

[Corion]: zentara: Most likely they used something like [http://www. perlmonks.org/? node=123456] instead of [id://123456], which uses whatever domain you're visiting from
[LanX]: hmm... Actually this could be used for a phishing exploit ...
[LanX]: ... well like always :)
[zentara]: LanX One day, I will see a great interest in Tk. It's small, self-contained, needs very few external libraries, AND makes it easy to make high-contrast displays. :-)
[zentara]: Corion in this cased they left the www. out
[zentara]: /d// :-)
[LanX]: i like tk, just joking. but what about modern styles?
