    string manipulation

    Develop a C program that prompts its
    user for a word that contains the sequence of
    letters "reat" (for example, the user could
    type in the word: great, treat, threat,
    greatly or treatise), replaces that letter
    sequence by "r8" and prints the result to the
    screen. For the 5 example words given earlier,
    the result printed by the program should be:
    gr8, tr8, thr8, gr8ly and tr8ise, respectively.
    Test your program and then paste it below
    (note 1: you may want to start with great and
    threat, and then enhance your code to also
    work with greatly and treatise).
    (note 2: this question is about string mani-
    pulation and does NOT involve conditionals
    or iteration statements).

    You also might want to start - after taking into account the prior post - by posting this on the C forum, not the C++ forum.
    "Owners of dogs will have noticed that, if you provide them with food and water and shelter and affection, they will think you are god. Whereas owners of cats are compelled to realize that, if you provide them with food and water and shelter and affection, they draw the conclusion that they are gods."
    -Christopher Hitchens
