    Possible to edit a Char Array copying to keyboard input ?

    Hi there guys, I have a question for you, is it possible to the the following in C?
    I mean:

    In the code I would have something like


    char example[] = "Single"

    then do edit this string, I would copy to input of scanf,
    and then i could just use backspace to delete the last char 'e',
    then I would press enter, and scanf would store the new example string
    on the same pointer example..

    Possible in C ?
    Thanks alot guys!

    No. You'll have to write your own code to edit the string.

    In the end it will probably be easier to just ask your user to re-enter it.

    I understood...
    You want to stuff it back into the input buffer and let the guy edit it with scanf()...
    That's not gonna happen.

    As I said... you're going to have to write your own code for that.

    Yep... you're going to have to write your own input routine from scratch...
