    if anyone knows how to, please respond. I'm stuck on trying to write a simple piece that asks me to print the first 5 characters of a name

    i know how to print the first character.
    EX. firstL=first.charAT(0); so if i give the name robert, it would print the "r".

    But how would i write code to print the first 5 characters.
    thanks to anyone that can help me.

    could you do something like:

    Code:
    string name = 'robert';
    string firstFiveChar = name.substring(0, 4);

    oh man, your a life saver, the code worked with one minor alteration. that alteration was in defining the amount of characters in

    name.substring(0, 4);
    I had to just change the 4 to a 5 and it worked. Thanks again SOOOOOOOOOO much
