    cutting a string

    I have two questions:

    1:
    So I have a char
    http://192.168.1.1:80/path1/path2/pathn/test.exe

    I want to cut this char into 3 parts, into the ip 192.168.1.1, the port 80 and the path with the file name path1/path2/pathn/test.exe.


    2:
    I have a char with a path c:\test\temp\test.txt and I want only the path c:\test\temp

    Thanks for help.

    If it were C, I'd say (1) sscanf, (2) strrchr. They'll both be available in C++, of course, but someone will now come along and mention something else.
    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.*

    1. If you used strings, like you should, you would have an easier time since you have a bunch of find functions and a substr function.

    2. Again, use strings, and for this particular problem, use find_last_of()
