Subject: Room for expansion
Download (untitled) / with headers
text/plain 499b
There's room to expand the functionality of this module and give it more of a raison d'etre: Given a chunk of text, truncate in complete sentences or paragraphs, as specified by the user, to a minimum (up to a maximum) number of characters. Optionally return the entire source text if it is not more than some percentage larger than the maximum. This can be useful for generating RSS feeds, etc. It becomes a little complicated to do well because of abbreviations, acronyms and quotations.
