in reply to index offset mean?

Perhaps the following entry from the Camel Book Glossary will shed some light:

How many things you have to skip over when moving from the beginning of a string or array to a specific position within it. Thus, the minimum offset is zero, not one, because you don’t skip anything to get to the first item.

Hope that helps,
