Variable Editing...

I am working on an algorithm which would take a text file and load each line into a variable, and then adjust the line, store the finished variable in a new variable, then move on to the next line.  if I used the syntax:
if Left$(Ln$, 9)="some text" then Left$(Ln$, 9)=""

would this trunicate the first 9 characters of Ln$?

You should code it as:

IF LEFT$( Ln$, 9) = "some text" THEN Ln$ = RIGHT$( Ln$, len( Ln$ ) - 9 )

Since you want the result in Ln$ you have to have Ln$ be on the left side of the assignment operator (=).
