How do you pull first 100 characters of a string in PHP

I am looking for a way to pull the first 100 characters from a string variable to put in another variable for printing.

Is there a function that can do this easily?

For example:

$string1 = "I am looking for a way to pull the first 100 characters from a string variable to put in another variable for printing.";
$string2 = 100charfunction($string1);
print $string2


To get:
