    strtok and string delimiters

    Ive been using strtok to parse a user line in commands, for simulating a shell. The problem is with string delimiters, like ">>".
    strtok treats only chars delimiters, not string. Is there anyway to use string delimiters using strtok or another function?

    Thanks in advance

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