# Get length of a string in Julia – length() Method

• Last Updated : 26 Mar, 2020

The `length()` is an inbuilt function in julia which is used to return the length of the specified string with desired starting and end position.

Syntax:
length(S::AbstractString)
or
length(S::AbstractString, i::Integer, j::Integer)

Parameters:

• S::AbstractString: Specified string
• i::Integer: Inclusive starting position.
• i::Integer: Inclusive ending position.

Returns: It returns the length of the specified string with desired starting and end position.

Example 1:

 `# Julia program to illustrate ``# the use of String length() method`` ` `# Finding the length of the string``# "Geeks"``println(length(``"Geeks"``))`` ` `# Finding the length of the string``# "Geeks" from 2nd to 4th position``println(length(``"Geeks"``, ``2``, ``4``))`` ` `# Finding the length of the string``# "Geeks" from 2nd to 5th position``println(length(``"Geeks"``, ``2``, ``5``))`` ` `# Finding the length of the string``# "GeeksforGeeks" ``println(length(``"GeeksforGeeks"``))`` ` `# Finding the length of the string``# "GeeksforGeeks" from 2nd to 2nd position``println(length(``"GeeksforGeeks"``, ``2``, ``2``))`` ` `# Finding the length of the string``# "GeeksforGeeks" from 4th to 10th position``println(length(``"GeeksforGeeks"``, ``4``, ``10``))`

Output:

Example 2:

 `# Julia program to illustrate ``# the use of String length() method``  ` `# Finding the length of the string``# "12345"``println(length(``"12345"``))``  ` `# Finding the length of the string``# "12345" from 2nd to 4th position``println(length(``"12345"``, ``2``, ``4``))``  ` `# Finding the length of the string``# "2468" from 1st to 3rd position``println(length(``"2468"``, ``2``, ``3``))`
