About Substring

This article is about definition of a substring. For the computer function which performs this operation, see String functions (programming).

A substring of a string S is another string S' that occurs "in" S. For example, "the best of" is a substring of "It was the best of times". This is not to be confused with subsequence, which is a generalization of substring. For example, "Itwastimes" is a subsequence of "It was the best of times", but not a substring.

Prefix and suffix are refinements of substring. A prefix of a string S is a substring of S that occurs at the beginning of S. A suffix of a string S is a substring that occurs at the end of S.
