To get the first "
String.prototype.slice(), methods. Both methods will return a new string with the extracted characters. For example:
const str = 'Designcise'; console.log(str.substring(0, 6)); // 'Design' console.log(str.slice(0, 6)); // 'Design'
If the end index to either argument is greater than the length of the string, then the string's length is used in both cases. For example:
const str = 'foo'; console.log(str.substring(0, 6)); // 'foo' console.log(str.slice(0, 6)); // 'foo'
For these simple use cases, you can use either of the two methods. However, if start index is greater than end index, or the arguments to either method are negative or
NaN, then please be aware of the differences between the two methods.
