How might one remove the first x characters from a string? For example, if one had a string
lipsum, how would they remove the first 3 characters and get a result of
>>> text = 'lipsum' >>> text[3:] 'sum'
Another way (depending on your actual needs): If you want to pop the first n characters and save both the popped characters and the modified string:
s = 'lipsum' n = 3 a, s = s[:n], s[n:] print(a) # lip print(s) # sum
