# Print the middle character of a string

Given string str, the task is to print the middle character of a string. If the length of the string is even, then there would be two middle characters, we need to print the second middle character.

Examples:

Input: str = “Java”
Output: v
Explanation:
The length of the given string is even.
Therefore, there would be two middle characters ‘a’ and ‘v’, we print the second middle character.

Input: str = “GeeksForGeeks”
Output: o
Explanation:
The length of the given string is odd.
Therefore, there would be only one middle character, we print that middle character.

Approach:

1. Get the string whose middle character is to be found.
2. Calculate the length of the given string.
3. Finding the middle index of the string.
4. Now, print the middle character of the string at index middle using function charAt() in Java.

Below is the implementation of the above approach:

## C++

 `// C++ program to implement``// the above approach``#include``using` `namespace` `std;` `// Function that prints the middle``// character of a string``void`  `printMiddleCharacter(string str)``{``    ``// Finding string length``    ``int` `len = str.size();` `    ``// Finding middle index of string``    ``int` `middle = len / 2;` `    ``// Print the middle character``    ``// of the string``    ``cout << str[middle];``}` `// Driver Code``int` `main()``{``    ``// Given string str``    ``string str = ``"GeeksForGeeks"``;` `    ``// Function Call``    ``printMiddleCharacter(str);``    ``return` `0;``}` `// This code is contributed by Sapnasingh`

## Java

 `// Java program for the above approach``class` `GFG {` `    ``// Function that prints the middle``    ``// character of a string``    ``public` `static` `void``    ``printMiddleCharacter(String str)``    ``{``        ``// Finding string length``        ``int` `len = str.length();` `        ``// Finding middle index of string``        ``int` `middle = len / ``2``;` `        ``// Print the middle character``        ``// of the string``        ``System.out.println(str.charAt(middle));``    ``}` `    ``// Driver Code``    ``public` `static` `void``    ``main(String args[])``    ``{``        ``// Given string str``        ``String str = ``"GeeksForGeeks"``;` `        ``// Function Call``        ``printMiddleCharacter(str);``    ``}``}`

## Python3

 `# Python3 program for the above approach` `# Function that prints the middle``# character of a string``def` `printMiddleCharacter(``str``):``    ` `    ``# Finding string length``    ``length ``=` `len``(``str``);` `    ``# Finding middle index of string``    ``middle ``=` `length ``/``/` `2``;` `    ``# Print the middle character``    ``# of the string``    ``print``(``str``[middle]);` `# Driver Code` `# Given string str``str` `=` `"GeeksForGeeks"``;` `# Function Call``printMiddleCharacter(``str``);` `# This code is contributed by sapnasingh4991`

## C#

 `// C# program for the above approach``using` `System;` `class` `GFG{` `// Function that prints the middle``// character of a string``public` `static` `void` `printMiddlechar(String str)``{``    ` `    ``// Finding string length``    ``int` `len = str.Length;` `    ``// Finding middle index of string``    ``int` `middle = len / 2;` `    ``// Print the middle character``    ``// of the string``    ``Console.WriteLine(str[middle]);``}` `// Driver Code``public` `static` `void` `Main(String []args)``{``    ` `    ``// Given string str``    ``String str = ``"GeeksForGeeks"``;` `    ``// Function call``    ``printMiddlechar(str);``}``}` `// This code is contributed by amal kumar choubey`
