How to Remove the First Character in a String in Java
Suppose we want to remove the first character from the string
coffee to create the word
String str = "coffee"; // We want "offee"
In Java, we can use the
substring() function to obtain any substring of a string.
As explained in the docs, we have two ways of using this method:
substring(int beginIndex) substring(int beginIndex, int endIndex)
If we supply just one parameter, this method will return the substring from
beginIndex (inclusive) to the end of the string.
str.substring(1); // "offee"
