# StringTake

 StringTakegives a string containing the first n characters in . StringTakegives the last n characters in . StringTakegives the character in . StringTakegives characters m through n in . StringTakegives a list of the substrings specified by the . StringTakegives the list of results for each of the .
• StringTake gives characters m through n in steps of s.
• StringTake uses the standard Mathematica sequence specification.
Take the first 6 characters in a string:
Use InputForm to show quotes:
Take from the end of the string:
Take characters 5 through 10:
Take the first 6 characters in a string:
 Out[1]=
Use InputForm to show quotes:
 Out[2]//InputForm=

Take from the end of the string:

 Scope   (4)
Find character 6 in a string:
Take every other character:
Take the last 2 characters from several strings:
StringTake works with special characters:
Newline () counts as a single character:
StringTake can effectively do "part" extraction in strings:
StringTake works like applying Take to the list of characters:
Taking between positions 1 and 0 gives a zero-length string:
StringTake operates on the raw characters in a string:
