4gl help with trim function

4gl help with trim function

I need to get rid of whitespace and a trailing charecter return at the end of the line ive tried trim(fieldname) but just get an error. Also i believe chomp() may get rid of the charecter return. I have no idea how to use chomp() can anybody help?
Here is a snippet of the code....

function get_info()

        let imei = job.js_phone_code

i changed this to...

function get_info()

        let imei = trim(job.js_phone_code)

I'm guessing that I have completely got the syntax wrong, but hey i'm new to 4gl.
