Python's `str.endswith(~)` method returns a `boolean` indicating whether a string ends with the specified `suffix`.

Parameters

1. `suffix` | `string`

The suffix to check for in the source string.

2. `start` | `int` | `optional`

The index position of the source string to start check (inclusive). By default, `start=0`.

3. `end` | `int` | `optional`

The index position of the source string to stop check (exclusive). By default, `end = start + len(suffix)`.

Return value

A single `boolean` indicating whether the source string ends with the specified `suffix`.

Examples

Basic usage

To check whether source string `'abc def'` ends with suffix `'ef'`:

``` x = "abc def"x.endswith("ef") True ```

Start parameter

To check whether source string `'abc def'` ends with suffix `'def'`, starting at index position `5`:

``` y = "abc def"y.endswith("def", 5) False ```

The search starts at index position `5` which is at `'e'`. As `'ef'` does not end with the provided suffix of `'def'`, `False` is returned.

End parameter

To check whether source string `'abc def'` ends with suffix `'bc'`, starting at index position `0` and ending at index position `3` (exclusive):

``` z = "abc def"z.endswith("bc", 0, 3) True ```

The start position for the search is index position `0` (`'a'`) and the search ends before index position `3` (`' '`). Therefore we are checking whether string `'abc'` ends with suffix `'bc'` which returns `True`.
