In this tutorial, we are going to learn about how to remove the first character from a string in Java.
To remove the first character from a string, we can use the built-in substring() method in Java.
Here is an example, that removes the first character
h from the following string.
String str = "hello"; String result = str.substring(1); System.out.println(str.substring(1));
In the example above, we have passed
1 as argument to the substring() method. so it begins the extraction at index position
1 and extracts to the end of a string.
substring() method doesn’t mutates the original string, instead of it creates a new one with the extracted characters.
