In this tutorial, we are going to learn about how to get the last n characters of a string in Python.
Consider, we have the following string:
str = "abcdef"
To access the last n characters of a string in Python, we can use the subscript syntax
[ ] by passing
-n: as an argument to it.
-n is the number of characters we need to extract from the end position of a string.
Here is an example, that gets the last 4 characters from a string.
str = "abcdef" lastFour = str[-4:] # getting the last 4 characters print(lastFour)
