LPAD Function

By Nagabhushanam Ponnapalli,

LPAD returns char1, left-padded to length n with the sequence of characters in char2; <BR>char2 defaults to a single blank. If char1 is longer than n, this function returns the portion of char1 that fits in n. The argument n is the total length of the return value as it is displayed on your terminal screen. In most character sets, this is also the number of characters in the return value.
