How get a substring of a string

hello all

i want to get the substring of a string

i found a source that do it…but don’t work in my machine

example

“the source of ruby”.chars[0…5]

that must return “the so”

Just use the syntax…without “chars”

e.g.
a=“the source of ruby”
a[0…5] => “the so”

Or you can use strftime. That is Time.now.strftime("%b")

look at http://www.opengroup.org/onlinepubs/007908799/xsh/strftime.html
for other usages of strftime.

Mmh?
You use Date. Why you don’t use Date.today.wday?
