Other than using them to nicely format output, we haven’t talked much about strings. In this chapter and the next two chapters, we get heavily into strings. I'll show you how to manipulate them and find smaller strings within larger strings.

We started using strings in Chapter 1 with this statement:
print('Hello World')
Later, we talked about how you get input from the user as a string, and how to convert that input into a number:
>>>
>>> age = input('Please enter your age: ')
Please enter your age: 24
>>> age = int(age)
>>>
Then I showed you how to concatenate strings, like this:
>>>
>>> string1 = 'Hello' ...
