Hi guys, I'm working on a "more..." style text cut off to use as a short 

I'm looking to take the first say, 200 characters or so, but I want it 
to run out until the next instance of a "." (period) is found, so as to 
make a complete sentence.

anyone have a function handy?  php, asp, whatever... i can convert it.  
just not sure of the technique.
