save string to variable from slash command?

currently my slash command looks like this, and what i want to happen is in comments/pseudocode


Code:
local function MyAddonCommands(msg, editbox)
    if msg == "test" then
        --str1 = everything written after "test" 
    end

SLASH_HELLOWORLD1, SLASH_HELLOWORLD2 = "/test1", "/test2"

SlashCmdList["HELLOWORLD"] = MyAddonCommands
so basically, if i type

/test1 test save this string

i want "save this string" to be saved to a variable

could someone help me out on how to do this?

figured it out

made a solution using concatenation of string

Code:
    str1 = string.sub(msg, 1, 3)
    if str1 == "msg" then
        len = string.len(msg)
        str2 = string.sub(msg,5,string.len(msg))
        print("Current message: ")
        print(str2)
    end
if i type /test1 msg ddddddd

it will save ddddddd
