As many of you, I was pretty lost when I first tried myself with FM Text functions.

This is a very quick Tutorial, reviewing with some examples, the main functionality and technique used for parsing and stripping text.

I'd try to update it soon with a quick tool full of globals for some experimentation on these concepts.

The "tutorial" terminology may be a bit pompuous. Consider it as an introduction.

Building it even helped me review some of the main concepts.

Thanks for any comment.

Wouldn't you know, that is exactly what I was doing at 5AM on this fine Saturday. Great examples.

The Let function in FP7 really clears up scripting the start, end, start_pos, end_pos and lenght, helping reading the functions.
