digitalmars.D.bugs - [Issue 13632] New: Second argument for std.string.strip


          Issue ID: 13632
           Summary: Second argument for std.string.strip
           Product: D
           Version: D2
          Hardware: x86
                OS: Windows
            Status: NEW
          Severity: enhancement
          Priority: P1
         Component: Phobos

I suggest to add to std.string.strip a second optional argument as in the
Python string method strip:

Return a copy of the string with the leading and trailing characters removed.
The chars argument is a string specifying the set of characters to be removed.
If omitted or None, the chars argument defaults to removing whitespace. The
chars argument is not a prefix or suffix; rather, all combinations of its
values are stripped:


 '   spacious   '.strip()
'example' In D you can use a "char pattern" for the second argument. --
