Difference between the substr() and substring() in JavaScript?

In this article, We’ll see what’s the difference between substr and substring in javascript

The substring() method returns the part of the string between the start and end indexes, or to the end of the string.

Below an example

let str = "nexladder web tutorials";
console.log(str.substring(1, 3)); // Output: ex -> Excludes the last index
console.log(str.substr(1, 3)); // Output: exl -> Includes the last index
