    after putting this code into my programme:

    printf("\n\nOk, please enter a word to look for in this sentence.\n");

    scanf("%s", &word);


    char *delims = { " .," };
    char *ptr;
    int count = 0;

    ptr = strtok(sentence2, delims);

    while (ptr != NULL)
    {
    if (strcmp(sentence2, word) ==0)


    count++;
    ptr = strtok(NULL, delims);
    }

    printf("Found word count %d times\n", count);
    }



    it seems only to count the word entered if its at the start of the sentence, and then counts every word after it. otherwise if it isnt the starting word it just counts a total of 0. how come?

    thanks, brad.

    You're comparing the wrong values in strcmp. Use strcmp(ptr, word).

    The idea of strtok in this implementation is that you get a pointer (ptr) to each word in the sentence, and process it one by one.

    Also, you best read about code tags if you're gonna post code here:

    When all else fails, read the instructions.
    If you're posting code, use code tags: [code] /* insert code here */ [/code]
