    String, from - to.

    If I got a string and I would like to chop of the first 5 characters and store these in a string of their own. How would I do that?

    Take a look at the substr() member function of std::string.

    Btw. if I include cctype do I then also need to declare it like "using ..........." Like in "using namespace std;"? Or is this not needed?

    Everything in <cctype> is in the std:: namespace.
