Really simple, but can't see which funtion to use in the manual.

I want to take a user-inputted string $text, and IF it's length is more
than $limit, trim it to the limited length, and then tack on some kind
of "... text cut (too long)" thing on the end.

I'm only missing one bit (line4):

1  $limit = "5000";
2  if(strlen($text) > $limit)
3    {
4    <cut $text down to $limit length>
5    $text .= "...sorry, text was too long";
6    }

Or is it hard than that?
