StringTrimLeftUntil

Trim a string left until it reaches the delimiter character.

; Name ..........: StringTrimLeftUntil
; Description ...: Trim a string left until it reaches the delimiter charecter
; Syntax ........: StringTrimLeftUntil($sDelimiter, $sString)
; Parameters ....: $sDelimiter          - Charecter(s) to trim until
;                  $sString             - A string value.
;                  $iOccurrence         - Trim until which occurrence of the delimiter [Default = 1st occurrence]
; Return values .: Trimmed String
; Author ........: TheDcoder
; Modified ......: Thanks to water for the Idea 
; Remarks .......: This function is not case sensitive meaning "DeLiMiTeR" is same as "Delimiter"
