Hi everyone,

I'm a newbie who's just started experimenting with Ruby and Rails. At
the moment I'm looking for a way to return an x number of characters
from a string, eg. 5 characters starting from position 10 in the string,
the last 10 chars, the first 15 chars, etc.

Is there a String method that does this? I can't seem to find any but I
may have missed something glaringly obvious. Any help would be greatly
appreciated.

Cheers,
Dany.
