Why JS is terrible at string manipulation.

how they implemented it
str.substring(start,end)

how it should be
str.substring(start,length)

    I meant to specify "it" as the substring String method.

    It seems far more intuitive to designate starting index and length vs. starting index and ending index.

    That's exactly what str.substr() does. There are two separate methods for a reason
