Depends what language you want to do it in. For example in unix shell I
would use awk's substring:

choppedvalue=`echo ${oldvalue} | awk '{print(substr($0,3,4))}'`
echo "Value is **${choppedvalue}"

  Morning folks!

  I'm looking for a script that will hide the first part of a
  number and just display the last 4 digits.

  I have seen this in action on websites, where cc numbers are just
  showing last 4 digits for confirmation and the beginning is *'s.

  Searching using google hasn't given me much, as I'm struggling to
  define my search.

  Also how safe is this?
