Declaration

Following is the declaration for java.lang.StringBuffer.subSequence() method

public CharSequence subSequence(int start, int end)

Parameters

  • start -- This is the start index, inclusive.

  • end -- This is the end index, exclusive.

Return Value

This method returns the specified subsequence.

Exception

Example

The following example shows the usage of java.lang.StringBuffer.subSequence() method.

package com.tutorialspoint;

import java.lang.*;

public class StringBufferDemo {
 
   public static void main(String[] args) {
  
   StringBuffer buff = new StringBuffer("admininstrator");
   System.out.println("buffer = " + buff);

   CharSequence cSeq;
   // returns the specified subSequence
   cSeq = buff.subSequence(0,5);

   // print the subsequence
   System.out.println("subSequence = " + cSeq);
   }      
}

Let us compile and run the above program, this will produce the following result:

buffer = admininstrator
subSequence = admin
