Subject [jira] Commented: (LANG-405) StringUtils.truncate() to cut out middle part of a String
Date Fri, 01 Feb 2008 16:35:09 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/LANG-405?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=12564819#action_12564819
] 

Sebb commented on LANG-405:
---------------------------

What rules should be used to decide where to put the ellipsis?

Should it try to leave:
Equal numbers of characters each side?
Equal numbers of words each side?
or
A sentence that still makes some sense? ;-)

> It would be handy to have a String method that cuts out the middle part of a String such
that as much as possible is kept from the start and end of the String, but the middle part
is replaced by an ellipsis "..."
> BeOS had a function like this, but it's poorly documented, missing examples:
> http://www.beunited.org/bebook/The%20Support%20Kit/String.html#Truncate()
> e.g.:
> A very long text with unimportant stuff in the middle but interesting start and end to
see if the text is complete.
> becomes:
> A very long text...to see if the text is complete.
