[Openmcl-devel] Building tables with format

I fear my question is a little bit off topic.

I would like to output a table with fixed-width cells.  This means I 
need to truncate string arguments in order to keep the cell width 
constant.  FORMAT offers a way to add a padding, but there is not way 
to truncate a string argument (I would have used an option to the ~A or 
~S directives).

Is there any way to extend OpenMCL's FORMAT mechanism in order to do 
just that?

Thanks for your help,
