Get the last 4 characters of a string


I have the following string: "aaaabbbb"

How can I get the last four characters and store them in a string using Python?

str = "aaaaabbbb"
newstr = str[-4:]

Like this:

>>> mystr = "abcdefghijkl"
>>> mystr[-4:]

This slices the string’s last 4 characters. The -4 starts the range from the string’s end. A modified expression with [:-4] removes the same 4 characters from the end of the string:

>>> mystr[:-4]

For more information on slicing see this Stack Overflow answer.
