Let’s say we have the following string with some colons −

var values="This is:the first program in JavaScript:After that I will do Data Structure program";

We need to get the substring between the colon. The output should be −

result=values.split(":");
console.log(result[1]);

node fileName.js.


Here, my file name is demo273.js.
