class String
# If you pass a single Fixnum, returns a substring of one character at that
# position. The first character of the string is at position 0, the next at
# position 1, and so on. If a range is supplied, a substring containing
# characters at offsets given by the range is returned. In both cases, if an
# offset is negative, it is counted from the end of the string. Returns nil
# if the initial offset falls outside the string. Returns an empty string if
# the beginning of the range is greater than the end of the string.
#
# str = "hello"
# str.at(0) #=> "h"
# str.at(1..3) #=> "ell"
# str.at(-2) #=> "l"
# str.at(-2..-1) #=> "lo"
# str.at(5) #=> nil
# str.at(5..-1) #=> ""
#
# If a Regexp is given, the matching portion of the string is returned.
# If a String is given, that given string is returned if it occurs in
# the string. In both cases, nil is returned if there is no match.
#
# str = "hello"
# str.at(/lo/) #=> "lo"
# str.at(/ol/) #=> nil
# str.at("lo") #=> "lo"
# str.at("ol") #=> nil

# Returns the beginning of the string up to position. If the position is
# negative, it is counted from the end of the string.
#
# str = "hello"
# str.to(0) #=> "h"
# str.to(3) #=> "hell"
# str.to(-2) #=> "hell"
#
# You can mix it with +from+ method and do fun things like:
#
# str = "hello"
# str.from(0).to(-1) #=> "hello"
# str.from(1).to(-2) #=> "ell"
