    copy string not from beginning

    I want to copy a string without the first four characters. It doesn't matter weather or not it's c or c++ style strings.

    Code:
    //For std::string
    std::copy(str.begin()+4,str.end(),copytoItr);
    //for c-string
    std::copy(str+4,str+STR_LEN,copytoItr);
    It is too clear and so it is hard to see.
    A dunce once searched for fire with a lighted lantern.
    Had he known what fire was,
    He could have cooked his rice much sooner.

    Code:
    std::string oldstring("Hey there!");
    std::string newstring(oldstring.substr(4));  // newstring = "there!"
