    need help 6

    I have program here from msdn.
    my problem is how to get output such as "fox" or when read backward output such as "over the". what syntax or commnad i need to use.

    /* STRSTR.C */

    #include <string.h>
    #include <stdio.h>

    char str[] = "lazy";
    char string[] = "The quick brown dog jumps over the lazy fox";
    char fmt1[] = " 1 2 3 4 5";
    char fmt2[] = "1234567890123456789012345678901234567890123456789 0";

    void main( void )
    {
    char *pdest;
    int result;
    printf( "String to be searched:\n\t%s\n", string );
    printf( "\t%s\n\t%s\n\n", fmt1, fmt2 );
    pdest = strstr( string, str );
    result = pdest - string + 1;
    if( pdest != NULL )
    printf( "%s found at position %d\n\n", str, result );
    else
    printf( "%s not found\n", str );
    }


    Output

    String to be searched:
    The quick brown dog jumps over the lazy fox
    1 2 3 4 5
    12345678901234567890123456789012345678901234567890

    lazy found at position 36

    Start by moving forward from 36 until the first character after a space and print that word, then move backward from 36 until you've counted two spaces. Print the two words.

    And don't use void main, MSDN is wrong there.

    My best code is written with the delete key.
