How to get the last character of a string in Ruby

In this tutorial, we are going to learn about how to get the last character of a given string in Ruby.

Consider, we have the following string:

name = "alisha"

Now, we need to get the last character a from the above string.

In Ruby, strings are a sequence of characters, where the first character index is [0]. the second character index [1], etc.

Getting the last character

To access the last character of a string, we need to pass the negative index -1 to the square brackets [] in Ruby.

Note: Negative index gets the data from the end of a string.

Here is an example, that gets the last character a from the following string:

name = "alisha"
lastChar = name[-1]

puts lastChar

Output:

"a"
