import java.lang.*;

public class StringBuilderDemo {

  public static void main(String[] args) {
  
    StringBuilder str = new StringBuilder("programming language");
    System.out.println("string = " + str);
  
    // returns the index of the specified substring
    System.out.println("Index of substring = " + str.indexOf("age"));
  
    /* returns the index of the specified substring, starting at 
    the specified index */
    System.out.println("Index of substring = " + str.indexOf("am",2));
