Removing the first n characters of a string in Python

In this tutorial, we are going to learn about how to remove the first n characters of a string in Python.

consider, we have a following string:

str = "good morning"

Now, we want to remove the first 3 characters goo from the above string.

Removing the first n characters

To remove the first n characters of a string we can use the slice notation [ ] by passing n: as an argument.

n is the number of characters we need to remove the from the beginning of a string.

Here is an example, that removes the first 3 characters from the following string.

str = "good morning"

modified = str[3:]

print(modified)

Output:

"d morning"

Alternatively, we can also use the lstrip() method by passing the first n characters as an argument to it.

str = "good morning"

modified = str.lstrip("goo")

print(modified) # "d morning"

Another example of lstrip() method:

name = "pearson"

modified = name.lstrip("pear") # removing first 4 characters

print(modified) # "son"
