Default chop last character

Am i right in saying that chop will remove the last character from a string?

Basically, i have "piccoceraciukscotlandglasgowrangers'" held in a string. How can i remove the ' (apostrophe)? Can i use chop($strname)??

Cheers.

yep, chop removes the last char in a string and returns the char that it chopped. If you use it in a list context it'll chop the last char of each element in the list, and return only the last char it chopped.
