Cupy a part of a string
Sorry, I guess this is extreme simple, but I couldn't found a answer for this.
I simply like to take a part of a string and do a copy to another variable.
I have ONLY the position as a number of the beginning of the sequence to copy, no string. And as well the length of the sequence to copy as number only.
Is this possible without doing a loop? A loop would be way to slow. The data to process can become VERY big.

variable: copy/part "This String" 5
== "This "

Well in this case, I would have only the /first/ five chars. So I would need to /navigate/ to the specific position, before I can get my string.
Is there a way to tell rebol the beginning /and/ the length in only one step?

>> t: "abcdefghijklm"
>> copy/part at t 5 3
Means copy 3 chars from t starting AT char 5.

Or make it a function:
substr: func [arg [series!] start length][
copy/part at arg start length
>> substr "test" 2 3
