in reply to Extract string after removing the substring

Here’s another way:

If you don’t need the original string anymore, just give an empty string as the REPLACEMENT argument to substr:

1:26 >perl -E " $string = qq[ATATTTATATTAT]; say $string; $removed = +substr($string, 0, 3, q[]); say $removed; say $string; " ATATTTATATTAT ATA TTTATATTAT 1:30 >

Hope that helps,
