      String SubStr1 = new String("Tutorials" );
      String SubStr2 = new String("Sutorials" );

      System.out.print("Found Last Index :" );
      System.out.println(Str.lastIndexOf( 'o' ));
      System.out.print("Found Last Index :" );
      System.out.println(Str.lastIndexOf( 'o', 5 ));
      System.out.print("Found Last Index :" );
      System.out.println( Str.lastIndexOf( SubStr1 ));
      System.out.print("Found Last Index :" );
      System.out.println( Str.lastIndexOf( SubStr1, 15 ));
      System.out.print("Found Last Index :" );
      System.out.println(Str.lastIndexOf( SubStr2 ));
