    simple, try this

    Code:
    /* Here i is the position of where to copy the newstring into another string */
      strcpy((another_string+(i-1)), newstring) ;
    "There is no alternative to consitency..."

    To add a string into another one, you should look at strcat().

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

    void main(void){

    char newstring[20] = "lee";
    char another_string[20] = "This is kenny";

    int i=9;

    strcpy((another_string+(i-1)), newstring) ;

    printf("%s",another_string);
    }

    This would print "This is lee"...instead of "This is lee Kenny"..which is the correct output...

    For inserting in between the string u need to take one more temp variable
    Try this,

    Code:
    #include <string.h>
    #include <stdio.h>
    
    void main(void){
    
    char newstring[20] = "lee";
    char another_string[20] = "This is kenny";
    char temp_string[20] ;
    
    
    int i=9;
    int size=strlen(newstring);
    
    strcpy( temp_string,another_string);
    strcpy((another_string+(i-1)), newstring ) ;
    strcat(another_string, " ") ;
    strcat(another_string, (temp_string+i-1)) ;
    
    printf("%s",another_string);
    
    }
    
    /*Pls. take care of error handling,
    u can write this code in multiple ways...try out other ways also.*/

    void main(void)

    Never use void main(), you should use instead int main()

    What is the exact reason for not using void main.

    As far as i understand, people say int main should be used because a value should be returned to the OS.

    But i think compiler dose take care of this..so where is the problem ???

    >>What is the exact reason for not using void main.
    Because the C language states that it's wrong. But, if you don't give a hoot about being correct or portable and your compiler supports void main I don't see a problem :-)
