[thelist] CF Question: Permutation of right(string, count)

Yes, treat the string like a list. To get everything to the right of the
LAST comma, do:

<CFSET EndStuff = ListLast(Str)>

If STR is foo,bar,ray then this will return "ray". If you want everything
after the first comma, in this case "bar,ray", then simply do:

<CFSET EndStuff = ListDeleteAt(Str,1)>
