    array help

    What is the best way to loop through an array in order to look for a sepcific character. If that character isn't found, I need to insert it into the string at a particular spot (between the 3rd and 4th character)

    Any ideas?
    Thanks

    Check the man page (or other documentation) on the standard library function strchr().

    In addition to strchr(), look at memmove().
    If you understand what you're doing, you're not learning anything.
