I don't do Tkinter, but I'll give you a generic answer.
Python 1.5.2 (#1, Apr 18 1999, 16:03:16) [GCC pgcc-2.91.60 19981201

>>> test = 'this is a string'
>>> test = test[:-1]
'this is a strin'
You'll undoubtably have a way to get and set the string from the
entrywidget, so I'll assume they are just using an attribute such as
entrywidget.text = entrywidget.text[:-1]
Hope this is what you were looking for.
