wezterm.truncate_left(string, max_width)

Since: Version 20210502-130208-bff6815d

The functionality described in this section requires version 20210502-130208-bff6815d of wezterm, or a more recent version.

Returns a copy of string that is no longer than max_width columns (as measured by wezterm.column_width).

Truncation occurs by removing excess characters from the left end of the string.

For example, wezterm.truncate_left("hello", 3) returns "llo".
