    strings

    this is a program for splitting numbers from letters, the only problem i have is that it doesnt count any after it finds a lettre.

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

    int main()
    {
    int size;
    printf("Enter a string of letters and numbers.\n");
    char string[50];
    scanf("%s", string);
    size = strlen(string);
    printf("\nYour string is %d byt%s long...\n", size, (size==1 ? "e" : "es"));
    printf(" ... and contains %d characters\n\n", size);
    printf("string = %d\n", atoi(string));
    return 0;
    }

    ie, input: 51516fef54, and the output will be 51516 (leaves the 54). how do i make it find the 54 at the end?

    Brad.
