[edit] Template-info Template documentation
Ambox content This template is used on 2,700+ pages.
To avoid any disruptions and to save server load, any changes should first be tested in this template's /sandbox or /testcases subpage, or in your own user space. The tested changes can then be added in one single edit to this template. As a courtesy to other users, please discuss any changes at the talk page before implementing them.

This template returns the last word of the first parameter, i.e. the last non-space token after the last space. Use |1= for the first parameter if the string may contain an equals sign (=).

By default, words are delimited by spaces, but the optional parameter |sep= can set the separator to any character. Exception: If a percent sign (%) is wanted as separator, |sep= has to be set to %% instead of %. This is because the percent sign is a special symbol in Lua patterns which is used to represent character classes.

UsageEdit

One parameter (space as separator):

  • {{Last word|string}}
  • {{Last word|1=string}}

Two parameters (user-defined character as separator):

  • {{Last word|string|sep=character}}
  • {{Last word|1=string|sep=character}}

ExamplesEdit

  • {{Last word|Select last word}} → word
  • {{Last word|Select last}} → last
  • {{Last word|Select}} → Select
  • {{Last word|Select, last word|sep=,}} → last word
  • {{Last word|Foo-bar|sep=-}} → bar
  • {{Last word|1=len = a+b|sep==}} → a+b
