Split a String in a Number of Pieces With Fixed Length
Split a string in a number of pieces with fixed length
StrChop(x, len, pos)
- the string to be cut in pieces.
- a vector with the lengths of the pieces.
- a vector of cutting positions. This can not be used simultaneously with
If length is going over the end of the string the last part will be returned, so if the rest of the string is needed, it's possible to simply enter a big number as last partlength.
pos can't be defined simultaneously, only alternatively.
Typical usages are
StrChop(x, len) StrChop(x, pos)
x <- paste(letters, collapse="") StrChop(x=x, len = c(3,5,2)) # and with the rest integrated StrChop(x=x, len = c(3, 5, 2, nchar(x))) # cutpoints at 5th and 10th position StrChop(x=x, pos=c(5, 10))
