    strstr() is a pretty good hint. Try a Google search for the strstr() man page, or check your IDE's documentation on it. It will allow you to do what you want fairly easily.

    strstr() searches a string contained in another string;

    #include <string.h>
    char *strstr(const char *s1, const char *s1);

    return a value that points to the location of the string s2 in s1;

    i hope it helps

    Hey Guys thanks for the help. I checked out how to use strstr() and i also found out another useful string method called strtok() which im using to get the words, and after i get them i use strstr() to count how many times it appears on the text.

    Thanks for the help, now i can keep implementing my program
