I have a string that is 7 characters and represents file mode in UNIX/LINUX
from rpm:


I don't care about the 0100 portion, I am only interested in the file
permissions portion which is 755.  How can I get three characters from the
string starting at the right?  ( -OR- strip 4 characters from the left? )
