What Is a String Slicer?

This browser-based program slices strings like a hot knife slices butter. It extracts all characters from a string that are in the range [start, end]. Both range parts are included in the match. For example, if you set the start to 4 and end to 5, and your input string is "goodjob" will turn into a substring "dj". If one of the parameters is missing, then the extracted piece extends to the last (or first) character of the string. For example, for the range [2, ⌴] we get the slice "oodjob" and for the range [⌴, 3] we get the slice "goo". Starting and ending values can also be negative. When working with negative parameters, the last element is the minus first (-1), the second to last is the minus second (-2), and so on. For example, if the range is [-3, -1] then the cropped string will be "job". Combinations of different signs are also acceptable. For example, the interval [3, -4] will turn into "od" and the interval [-3, 6] will turn into "jo". The order of letters in the output doesn't change, they always go from left to right. If you need to swap characters' positions, use the "Reverse Symbols" option. You can also use the "Multiline Slicing" option when working with multiple lines. In this case, individual strings on new lines will be sliced independently. Stringabulous!


String Slicer Examples

Click to try!

Slice a Phrase

This example slices a string using a range with positive start and length values. It starts the slice from the eleventh position, which corresponds to the letter "j", and ends the slice at the seventeenth position, which corresponds to the letter "y". As a result, this tool returns a substring with a single word "journey".

Life is a journey, not a race.

Slice Alphabets

In this example, we use a slicing mechanism to extract the last five letters from the Latin, Cyrillic, and Greek alphabets. As each alphabet has a different number of letters, we use the negative values in the range. The position "-1" corresponds to the last character of the alphabet and the position "-5" corresponds to the fifth letter from the end, so we're slicing backward. We also activate the multi-line slicing mode to get substrings with the last five uppercase and lowercase letters from the alphabets of three different languages.

ABCDEFGHIJKLMNOPQRSTUVWXYZ abcdefghijklmnopqrstuvwxyz АБВГДЕЖЗИЙКЛМНОПРСТУФХЦЧШЩЬЮЯ абвгдежзийклмнопрстуфхцчшщьюя ΑΒΓΔΕΖΗΘΙΚΛΜΝΞΟΠΡΣΤΥΦΧΨΩ αβγδεζηθικλμνξοπρστυφχψω

Slice Web Address

This example cleans the input web addresses from the "https" (secure http) protocol, "www" (world wide web) prefixes, and trailing slashes, and extracts just the domain names. As the beginning part of each line is the same ("https://www.") and is 12 characters long, the app sets the starting position to 13. As the end part of each line is also the same (it's a trailing slash), the app sets the ending position to -2, which is the 2nd character from the end. Thus, all characters from the beginning of the string to the 13th position, as well as the last character, are deleted, and only the domain names are returned from each line.

Timeline of Art Movements

In this example, we crop a timeline of art movements. Each art period is on a new line and we slice all lines at once. We set the crop range from -5 to 13. This makes the program delete the years and the last word "Art" in each string, leaving only the names of the art periods.

1300 – 1600 Renaissance Art 1600 – 1725 Baroque Art 1720 – 1760 Rococo Art 1760 – 1830 Neoclassical Art 1800 – 1850 Romanticism Art 1840 - 1870 Realism Art 1870 – 1900 Impressionism Art 1880 – 1910 Symbolism Art 1905 – 1925 Expressionism Art 1908 – 1920 Cubism Art 1909 - 1918 Futurism Art 1915 - 1945 Precisionism Art 1959 - 1960 Pop Art

Slice and Reverse

This example deletes tens from a list of numbers, leaving only ones, which are then reversed. It specifies only the starting position set to 8 and the utility automatically extracts all letters starting from the eighth position till the end of the string. As the "Reverse Symbols" option is enabled, all letters are printed in reverse order.

twenty-one twenty-two twenty-three twenty-four twenty-five twenty-six twenty-seven twenty-eight twenty-nine

Slice Email Addresses

In this example, we cut off the ".com" top-level domain suffix from email addresses. To do this, we use only the ending position of the range and leave the starting field empty. In this case, the application extracts all the characters from the first character to the position -5, which is the fifth character from the last.
