How to Slice a String from a Point in Python?

Estimated read time 2 min read

To slice a string from a specific point in Python, you can use the colon (:) operator along with the starting and ending index positions of the slice.

Here’s an example of slicing a string from a specific point:

my_string = "Hello, World!"
# slice from index 7 to the end of the string
new_string = my_string[7:]
print(new_string) # Output: World!

In this example, the slice starts from index 7 (which contains the first character of the substring “World!”) and goes up to the end of the string. The resulting slice is a new string containing the characters “World!”.

You can also use index values for both the starting and ending positions of the slice to specify a range of characters to include in the slice. For example:

my_string = "Hello, World!"
# slice from index 7 up to (but not including) index 12
new_string = my_string[7:12]
print(new_string) # Output: World

In this example, the slice starts from index 7 (which contains the first character of the substring “World!”) and ends at index 12 (which contains the last character of the substring “World”). The resulting slice is a new string containing the characters “World”. Note that the character at index 12 (the exclamation mark) is not included in the slice.
