Is there a way to substring a string in Python, to get a new string from the third character to the end of the string?

Maybe like myString[2:end]?

If leaving the second part means 'till the end', and if you leave the first part, does it start from the start?

We can use slicing to get a sequence of items from the string. Here is the syntax for slicing in python:

sequence[start , stop, step]

This returns from the start element of string to the one element behind the stop index. The step is by default 1 and we can specifiy the value according to the need. 

Here is the example explaining slicing:

myString = 'Python is easy'

print("Substring from the third character to the end of string:", myString[2:] )

print("Substring from the start to the 5th character of string:", myString[:5])


Substring from the third character to the end of the string: 'thon is easy'

Substring from the start to the 5th character of string: ' Pyth'
