    array contains?

    is there any command in C that scans elements in an array to find a certain string? i have a student records program im working on that has last names and marks of an imaginary class. i want to have an option to type in the students last name and change their mark. id have a pretty good idea if there were some kind of command that can read the contents of an array? thanks.

    You have char * array? Scan through each last name comparing them. strcmp(). When it returns true, take note of where the last name was in the array and do whatever you wanted to do to it.
