  Sample input:
Guillotin ( "Head¶Chest¶Legs" )
  Sample output:
"Chest¶Legs¶"

  Function definition: (Copy & paste into FileMaker's Edit Custom Function window)

Whenever you have a list of values in a variable and need to go through them in a loop, you can always use getvalue ( $list ; 1 ) and use the Guillotin function afterwards to shorten the list. Don't forget to exit the loop if ( isempty ( $list )

The result is not as documented. RightValues () will append a ¶.

Guillotin ( "Head¶Chest¶Legs" ) = "Chest¶Legs¶"
