I'm trying to find out what are the first and second characters in the string. I have a character array token where each index contains a separate string. I want to look inside token for the characters. My idea was to copy token into dir. Is this logic correct? If not can you please advice. In this example, I'm trying to copy a string (e.g. "hi") located in token  into another array, dir, so that I can later traverse through dir to find specific characters.
tokens = "Hi";
printf("message: %s" , tokens);
or is there a way to directly look into tokens? Please help!
