    cut problem

    Hi

    OK I have the following problem:

    Code:
    char *Servaddress;
    
    char	ip[256];
    char	user[256];
    char	password[256];
    int	port;
    int	temp = 0;
    
    temp = sscanf(Servaddress,"ftp://%s:%s@%s:%d",&user,&password,&ip,&port);
    But the result is not what I have expected. I read that %s will read subsequent characters until a whitespace is found. But I need sth which read until the character I want is find, e.g. : or @.

    Any ideas?

    Use a scanset. And supply a width for the strings.
    Code:
       temp = sscanf(Servaddress,"ftp://%255[^:]:%255[^@]@%255[^:]:%d",
                     user,password,ip,&port);

    7. It is easier to write an incorrect program than understand a correct one.
    40. There are two ways to write error-free programs; only the third one works.*
