    syntax error

    hey guys, I am using the following code to count from a text file but I also want to check for ",jo " as well as "jo " I was trying to do it by using while((ch = strstr( ch, "jo ")) != 0) || while((ch = strstr( ch, ",jo ")) != 0) but this doesn't work I was just wondering how I could so this thanks.

    Code:
    char *ch=array;
    while((ch = strstr( ch, "jo ")) != 0) 
    
    	if( ch == array '||isspace (*(ch-1)))
    		{
    			temp.count++;
    		      ch++;
    													
    			
    	}
    		else
                        {
                            break;
                         }
    
    }

    Code:
    if( myString.find(",jo") != string::npos || myString.find("jo") != string::npos)
        cout<<"found one of 'em"<<endl;

    In other words, use a string object not a character pointer.
