string_truncate (public, deprecated)

 string_truncate [ args... ]

Defined in packages/acs-tcl/tcl/text-html-procs.tcl

Deprecated. Invoking this procedure generates a warning.

Truncates a string to len characters adding the string provided in the ellipsis parameter if the string was truncated. The length of the resulting string, including the ellipsis, is guaranteed to be shorter or equal than the len specified. Should always be called as ad_string_truncate [-flags ...] -- string since otherwise strings which start with a - will treated as switches, and will cause an error.
