[PD] trim symbols?

You can use [list fromsymbol] to convert the symbol to a list of ASCII
values and than work on that. See attached patch, it should do what you

Note that the patch assumes that the ending (like .wav) is always 4
characters. Also it uses a simple list-drip mechanism that should be
efficient for small lists, in doubt use list-drip of list-abs instead.

best wishes, ingo
