    Exclamation HELP with strlen and strcmpi

    Hello all,

    I was wondering if anyone can tell me what alternatives I have to using these two functions the strlen, and the strcmpi?

    I'm trying to write this code and I was wondering could I use string.length instead of strlen and how would I be able to do this:

    Code:
    l=strlen(word);
    and then how am I able to change these two functions:

    Code:
    if (!strcmpi (word2,word)) {cout<<"\n\t\t\t      "<<strupr(word)<<"\n\n\t\t\tCongratulations\n"; break;}
    to use some other method of writing this piece of code, but to evaluate to the same output? Meaning the strcmpi, and the strupr

    strlen is used on strings that are null terminated char arrays, which are referred to as c-style strings. The length() function is a function of the <string> class, and it's used on string types, which are sometimes referred to as c++ strings. So, if the string you are trying to determine the length of is a null terminated char array, then you use strlen(), but if the string is a string type, then you use the length() function.

    the strcmpi, and the strupr
    Never heard of them.
