Split string using its location
Hi all, I'm quiet new to Java programming, have done a few programs myself. Have a beginers book, and been trying some sample programs in that. But came up with one, that I was wondering how to do a part.
Basically, the program will take an input from the user, that is a string, that in itself includes a workers name, the amount of hours they worked in a given week, and their wage rate. The program, then has to output its pay before taxes and all. This is what the initial string would be like.
Sting numbers 0 - 19 Employees name
20 - 21 Number of hours worked
22 - 25 Hourly rate (Pound and pence)
So an example would be
So, the name is John Waters, works 12 hours in the week, and his rate is £9.50 per hour.
I put - in instead of a space just for convienience for people to see clearer.
What I was wondering was is there anyway to take that string, and split it into 3 substrings. I know you can split it, with some deliminater. But can you split a string, based on the amount of characters, if that makes sense.
Re: Split string using its location
Why not just use String's substring(...) method?
