I'm loading a text file in a memo.

I'd like to cound the letters in each line and if it exceeds a certain number then
i'd like to delete what ever comes after.

For example:

Line 1: "This is a phrase in line one"
If the cutoff number is 11 then line 1 should be
Line 1: "This is a p..."

I can think of one to ways of doing that.. with copy maybe but i'd like something fast.

Thanks in advance.
