    I'm not ask for ENTIRE program, only 1 Question !

    I din ask for ACTUAL answer, ok ?
    I din ask you guy to help me do entire program, i only got ONE question !
    I only wish to know, can i use the functions : strlen, strrev, etc
    Since the question there say "not allowed to use any functions in the <string.h> library."
    Please, only answer me CAN or NOT

    Develop a program that allows the user to enter a string and performing the following operations on it:
    - Count Number of Characters In String
    - Count Number of Words In String
    - Remove Spaces In String
    - Reverse String
    - Reverse Words In String
    - Look For Substring In String
    - Insert Substring Into String

    The following screen suggests a possible user interface:

    Enter String: C is Fun!

    1 íV Count Number of Characters In String
    2 - Count Number of Words In String
    3 - Remove Spaces In String
    4 íV Reverse String
    5 íV Reverse Words In String
    6 íV Look For Substring In String
    7 íV Insert Substring Into String

    Enter Choice:


    whereby:

    If option 1 is chosen, 7 (including any special characters but excluding spaces) is shown on the screen.
    If option 2 is chosen, 3 is shown on the screen
    If option 3 is chosen, 'CisFun!' is shown on the screen
    If option 4 is chosen, '!nuF si C' is shown on the screen
    If option 5 is chosen, 'C si !nunF' is shown on the screen
    If option 6 is chosen, get user to enter the substring he wants to find and display a message to tell him whether it is in the string
    If option 7 is chosen, get user to enter a substring, and the position he wants to insert into the original string. The new string is then displayed on the screen.

    No. fflush is not defined for input streams, only output

    You can use it but like he said, it isn't defined for input streams.

    And there is no need to flush the input stream anyways.

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