If all we needed was an expression to stick the date and time into a file name, this is super verbose and unreadable way to go about it. Frankly, it’s kind of embarrassing when you stick it next to .NET which has a method to provide an easy and elegant solution.
The second, is for the trim function to trim all unreadable characters, not just char(10). I frequently see the results of copy and paste doing kooky things in an application. Tabs, carriage returns, line feeds and non-breaking spaces make their way into our data. This raises all sorts of problems downstream. So I would like the trim function to do what the .NET function does – get rid of every invisible character. Heck, you can destroy wingdings if you like too, but I just REALLY want trim to trim.
