Checking string starts with another
To check if a string starts with another, we can use the built-in
startsWith() method takes the search string as an argument and returns
true if a search string is found; otherwise, it returns
Here is an example:
const str = 'this is my name' console.log(str.startsWith('this'));
By default, the string searching starts from position
0. We can also change its position by passing the second argument.
const str = 'this is my name'; console.log(str.startsWith('my',8));
Note: The above method is case-sensitive.
