Not that I'm directly aware of. You could read through the dhcp-eval man
page to see if there is something there. There doesn't seem to be a
length() operator, nor does substring() take, say, a negative number to
indicate measure from the end of the string.
In the general case there is no direct solution - the agent-id and
remote-id can contain arbitrary data, so it's not necessarily enough to
just drop the last byte (even though this seems to work in your case).
The suggestion I made prints the string as hex bytes, which can print
any string. I realise it's not very human friendly.
