    Question how to see if one string is contained in the other

    hey guys, i have a question about writing a function where the user is prompted to input 2 strings, and "determine if the second is in the first."

    anybody have any ideas how one would go about doing this?

    It's actually a standard function from string.h header.

    char *strstr(const char * s1, const char * s2);

    This function returns a pointer to the first occurrence of string s2 in string s1. The function returns the null pointer if the string is not found.
