    Have a look at this. It's a reasonably good appraisal of strtok() with an example.

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

    Hmm, perhaps a board search would give better examples. Generally I don't trust examples that use void main, this one is okay, but still makes me a bit edgy about how much the author really knows.

    You're right.. I have found it difficult though to find a reference site that explains everything clearly, and contains example code that is 100%

    Precisely why I recommend learning from decent books as opposed to questionable web sites. There are plenty of questionable books, but at least the questions are well documented on sites such as www.accu.org.
