Is there a way to substring a string in Python, to get a new string from the 3rd character to the end of the string?
>>> x = "Hello World!" >>> x[2:] 'llo World!' >>> x[:2] 'He' >>> x[:-2] 'Hello Worl' >>> x[-2:] 'd!' >>> x[2:-2] 'llo Worl'
Python calls this concept "slicing" and it works on more than just strings. Take a look here for a comprehensive introduction.
