$leftw(<count> <word list>)
Useful when you want to get the first few words in a word list.
The first <count> words from <word list>.
$leftw(2 hello there how are you?) returns "hello there" $leftw(-1 hello there bob) returns nothing $leftw(7 hello there bob) returns "hello there bob" $rightw(2 hello there how are you?) returns "are you?"
This function first appeared in “plus-2” (post-ircII, pre-EPIC)
