RPAD Function

By Nagabhushanam Ponnapalli,

RPAD returns char1, right-padded to length n with char2, replicated as many times as necessary; char2 defaults to a single blank. If char1 is longer than n, this function <BR>returns the portion of char1 that fits in n. <BR>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.
