Re: string slice elegant way


#1

Mage [mailto:removed_email_address@domain.invalid]

#a = ‘hello there’
#and I need ‘llo there’

#a[2,a.size] works, but I find it ugly because the given length
#is larger
#than the real length of the result.
#a[2,a.size - 2] is okay, but it is not DRY.

#Is there any elegant way, like a[2:] in Python?

is a[2…-1] good enough?


#2

this is the closest I could think of:

a = “hello there”
a[-9,9]

llo there
