Series in Python
Given a string of digits, output all the contiguous substrings of length `n` in that string.

Given a string of digits, output all the contiguous substrings of length
For example, the string "49142" has the following 3-digit series:
And the following 4-digit series:
And if you ask for a 6-digit series from a 5-digit string, you deserve whatever you get.
Note that these series are only required to occupy adjacent positions in the input; the digits need not be numerically consecutive.
Sometimes it is necessary to raise an exception. When you do this, you should include a meaningful error message to indicate what the source of the error is. This makes your code more readable and helps significantly with debugging. Not every exercise will require you to raise an exception, but for those that do, the tests will only pass if you include a message.
To raise a message with an exception, just write it as an argument to the exception type. For example, instead of
raise Exception, you shold write:
raise Exception("Meaningful message indicating the source of the error")
