  #include "nsStringAPI.h"

  nsresult NS_CStringCutData(
    nsACString& aString,
    PRUint32 aCutStart,
    PRUint32 aCutLength
  );

Parameters

aString
[in] A nsACString instance to be modified.
aCutStart
[in] The starting index of the section to remove, measured in storage units.
aCutLength
[in] The length of the section to remove, measured in storage units. Pass PR_UINT32_MAX to specify the length from aCutStart to the end of the string.

Return Values

The NS_CStringCutData function returns NS_OK if successful. Otherwise, it returns an error code.

Remarks

  NS_CStringCutData(str, 5, PR_UINT32_MAX);

  const char* data;
  NS_CStringGetData(str, &data);
  printf("%s\n", data); // prints out "hello"
