    Reading the data bitween the different headers in a buffer.

    Hi All,

    I have to read the data bitween the headers in a buffer as below mentioned

    char Char_Frame[1400]="123456789 C|A|abcd efghijklm|E|";

    I am receiving the data form CPU COM1, the data is copied in Char_Frame (above mentioned) i have to read the data bitween C|A| and |E|. These header come at any times within the size of that buffer. I have to read the data bitween those headers and send to the server. Could you please give me the logic to implement this.



    Thanks,
    Arise

    I am sooooooo tempted to write PERL code to reply to a user again (especially since this one is easiest to handle in PERL).

    Example:
    Code:
    char *delim1 = strstr(Char_Frame, "|A|");
    char *delim2 = strstr(delim, "|E|");    // though careful with this guy... since the above could
                                                              // have returned NULL.
    
    char temp[256];
    
    memcpy(temp, delim1 + 3, (delim2 - delim1) - 6)
    As opposed to one statement in PERL... but who is counting anyway.
