 */
class TestStringBuffer{
	StringBuffer sb = new StringBuffer("Hello www.javawithease.com");
 
	/**
	 * This method is used to show the use of delete() method.
	 * @author javawithease
	 */
	public void deleteTest(){
		//delete the substring of the string 
                //buffer from startIndex to endIndex-1.
		System.out.println(sb.delete(0,6));
	}
}
 
public class StringBufferDeleteExample {
