  • baseString is the string whose contents are being replaced.
  • pos is the zero-based starting position of the replacement.
  • len is the number of characters to be replaced.
  • str is the replacement string.
  • subpos is optional, and is the zero-based starting point of the replacement characters used from str.
  • sublen is optional, and is the number of replacement characters used from str.

If subpos and sublen aren’t specified, the entire str is used for the replacement.
