OSP-CL-CMPL-PERFM Add support for %TRIM built-in function

APAR Error Description / Circumvention
The limitation of one string operation built-in function,
%SUBSTRING, in CL forces application developers to spend time
and effort on workarounds when manipulating character strings in
CL programs and CL procedures.

The original CL compiler and the ILE CL compiler will provide
support for the following additional string operation built-in
%TRIM - Trim Characters at Edges
%TRIML - Trim Leading Characters
%TRIMR - Trim Trailing Characters
All of these CL built-in functions will have almost the same
behavior as the RPG built-in functions by the same name. The CL
function names were chosen to be the same as RPG to make the CL
built-in functions as easy and intuitive for RPG application
developers to use as possible.
