# $EPIC: functions_script.txt,v 1.2 2006/08/01 02:45:08 sthalik Exp $
This script contains several functions useful in scripting for text display. Of primary interest are $format() and $lformat(). They behave similarly to using the $var notation, except they will not truncate text that is wider than the specified width.
Refer to Section 6 of the help files for more information on the myriad functions built into the client.
Originally, this script contained many more functions, and a number of aliases. Though still present in the script source code, they are commented out, as they have been obsoleted by built-in capabilities of the client. The original functions were authored by Ian Frechette (Daemon), firstname.lastname@example.org.
