[ic] How do I chop a string?

Hi list,

I'm having a field that contains values inserted by users. My problem is
that when I'm displaying these values, my site-layout will get broken.

I could copy the value to a scratch variable, and cut off everything after
the first space, or eg. the 10th character, but I'm not good at this at all

I'm sure this is easy, but I'm a novice in Perl, so this causes too much
headache for me...

Regards, René
