s.substr(index, length)

Return a substring of length length, starting at index

// substr example

const ss = "abcd";

console.log ( ss.substr(1,2) ); // bc

console.log ( ss.substr(1, 9) ); // bcd
// length longer than available, take to the end instead

Note: by ES2015 spec, the method substr is required only if the host is web browser. For example, not required in node.js.
