Examples of how to use substring in a String

void setup()
  Serial.println("\n\nString  substring():");

void loop()
  // Set up a String:
  String stringOne = "Content-Type: text/html";

  // substring(index) looks for the substring from the index position to the end:
  if (stringOne.substring(19) == "html")
    Serial.println("It's an html file");
  // you can also look for a substring in the middle of a string:
  if (stringOne.substring(14, 18) == "text")
    Serial.println("It's a text-based file");

  // do nothing while true:
  while (true);
