{{str sub old|text|start|length}} = Substring of text starting at start and containing length characters. Zero-indexed: the first character is numbered 0, and so on, e.g. {{str sub old|20090624130510|8|2}} returns the 2 characters starting at the 9th, i.e. "

  • 200906241*
  • 2009062413*".


Any leading spaces are skipped, but internal spaces are counted exactly, yet compressed when displayed.
