Breaking sentences more meaningfully.
Often times when inserting a sentence(string) into a predefined database, we run into column character limitations.
Yes, you can use a truncate function but that end up creating meaningless sentences/words. Not to mention depending on where is breaks, sentence now could have words that you never want to see/display.
Let's say sentence is, "Quick brown fox jumps over the lazy dog" and breaking at 19(i.e. getting the 19th leftmost characters), would make it "Quick brown fox jum".
I know nothing harmful there but I think I we can be little smarter than that.
A smarter result would look something like, "Quick brown fox"
