To limit the length of a Python string, you can get a part of the string using bracket notation. You don't need to worry about the length of the string:
letters = 'abcdefg' print(letters[0:10])
the result of running the above code is:
and no errors are thrown, even though abcdefg is only 7 characters.
If our string were longer:
letters = 'abcdefghijklmnop' print(letters[0:10])
the result would be:
which is 10 characters long. The bracket notation is [from:to], and the character at the to index is not included.
