    Question splitting strings

    hi,

    is there any way to split a string into two in C or C++... like there is a 'SPLIT' in BASIC to split the strings to two.

    Code:
    #include <iostream>
    #include <string>
    
    
    
    int main(){
    	
    	std::string fullStr = "Hello World",
    				startStr,
    				endStr;
    	
    	startStr = fullStr.substr(0,5);
    	endStr = fullStr.substr(6,5);
    	
    	std::cout << startStr << " " << endStr;
    }

    Suppose you want to split the string after character no. 5. The two substrings are being stored in string2 and string3, while string1 is the main string.
    Code:
    #include<stdio.h>
    #include<string.h>
    int main()
    {
       char string1[MAX],string2[MAX],string3[MAX];
       int ctr1,ctr2,ctr3;
       gets(string1);
       for(ctr=0; ctr<5; ++ctr)
          string2[ctr]=string1[ctr];
       ctr3=0;
       for(ctr2=ctr; ctr2<strlen(string1); ++ctr2)
       {
          string3[ctr3]=string1[ctr2]; ++ctr3;
       }
    }
