Use case: I created an external tool entry for CUETools. Essentially, it is C:\Program Files\CUETools\CUETools.exe "<Path>" (application_path and parameter respectively). However, the terminal "\" messes up CUETools, e.g. CUETools.exe "D:\foo\" doesn't work whereas CUETools.exe "D:\foo" does.
I believe a function that cuts the number of characters a user assigns while returning the rest of the field will fix his issue, e.g. $RCut(<Path>,1). Basically, it is the opposite of $Left and $Right functions.
Thus, the working CUETools entry will be C:\Program Files\CUETools\CUETools.exe "$RCut(<Path>,1)".
This is nothing critical, just something that would add convenience for me and, hopefully, for others.
Note: I hope this doesn't confuse users of the cut command so often used in bash scripting.
