delete(int startIndex, int endIndex): delete the substring of the string builder from startIndex to endIndex-1.

Note: startIndex should be between 0 to length of string or less than endIndex, if it is not StringIndexOutOfBoundsException will be thrown.

 * @author javawithease
 */
class TestStringBuilder{
	StringBuilder sb = 
                new StringBuilder("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 StringBuilderDeleteExample {
	public static void main(String args[]){
		//creating TestStringBuilder object
