Use a for() loop from position n to start of field until a non space is found.
Thanks! That's what I'll do. But I'm a bit surprised that there seem to be no APIs for that on a Platform IBM has been pushing to be webby. Maybe this knowledge has been lost because today, everything is done with SQL…
Another option would be to have a separate field that stores the string length when written.
Since the original strings are fixed length, I don't see a way to get this fixed other than by looping over the individual fields' buffer, and set the byte immediately next to the first non-space character to NUL. Similar to your proposal. Since the buffer will be overwritten with the following _Rreadn anyway, I'll modify the original buffer. Might also save some CPU cycles on my 150. ;-)
