StringPadRight

StringPadRight["string",n]

makes string be of length n, padding it on the right with spaces or truncating it if necessary.

StringPadRight["string",n,"padding"]

pads by repeating copies of the string padding.

StringPadRight[{"s1","s2",}]

pads strings with spaces on the right to make them all the same length.

StringPadRight[{"s1","s2",},n,]

pads or truncates to make all strings of length n.

Details

  • StringPadRight effectively places repeated copies of padding to the right of string, truncating them when a total width of n characters has been achieved.
  • StringPadRight[BioSequence["type","seq"],n,] will apply the operation to the string "seq", yielding a BioSequence result.
  • The following letter is used as the default padding for each type of biomolecular sequence if not otherwise specified:
  • "DNA" or "CircularDNA"N
    "RNA"N
    "Peptide"X
