Description

Gets characters from a string_,_ from the beginning and stops when it encounters any of the characters in a specified set of characters. The search is case sensitive. For example, SpanExcluding("MyString", "inS") excludes "String" from "MyString" and returns "My". Because, in the string "MyString", after "My", the character 'S' (which is present in the second string "inS") is encountered.
