Trimming the text

I have to display a post but i want to display only 3 lines of it…I
want to trim the text and put read more link.

How do i do that?

Thank you.

PS: New Bee to rails.

check the ruby docs for String.

you could use scan
or each
or index and slice
or split

so many choices.

I used split and join…it worked for me.

Thank you.

You might also want to check Rails TextHelper, which has some useful
methods like excerpt, truncate, etc for manipulation strings.
