[list trim] works for symbols too! A little known secret.

I would like to display the name of the .wav file loaded from the HDD (using [openpanel]), but, without a full path and without the file extension. For example, [openpanel] outputs "symbol C:/Users/Hrvoje/Desktop/my_patches/SAMP_SEQ/samples/BD.wav" and I just want "BD" to be displayed. Is it possible in pd vanilla? Thank you for the help!
