_chomp


Description:

public unowned string _chomp ()

Removes trailing whitespace from a string.

This function doesn't allocate or reallocate any memory; it modifies string in place. Therefore, it cannot be used on statically allocated strings.

The pointer to string is returned to allow the nesting of functions.

Also see _chug and _strip.

Example: Remove trailing whitespace (inline):

public static int main (string[] args) {
string my_wisdom = " His scarf killed Stimson. -- Arrest the scarf then. \t ";
unowned string res = my_wisdom._chomp ();

// Output:
// ``' His scarf killed Stimson. -- Arrest the scarf then.'``
// ``' His scarf killed Stimson. -- Arrest the scarf then.'``
print ("'%s'\n", my_wisdom);
print ("'%s'\n", res);

return 0;
}
