    there's a website you may have heard of... begins with a g?
    anyway if you type stuff in there it finds it for you! in fact if you type strcpy or memcpy the very first link is what you want.

    If you program in C++, you need Boost. You should also know how to use the Standard Library (STL). Want to make games? After reading this, I don't like WxWidgets anymore. Want to add some scripting to your App?

    Either with your compiler (hint: mentioning it might be helpful) or online. Google can do wonders.

    Code:
    char str1[]="Sample string";
      char str2[40];
      char str3[40];
      strcpy (str2,str1);
      strcpy (str3,"copy successful");
      printf ("str1: %s\nstr2: %s\nstr3: %s\n",str1,str2,str3);
      return 0;
    how do i implement that to work so that it reads the 'find' from another file and replaces the word into another file, thus outputing to a new file?

    Don't search for the header, search for the aforementioned functions. To increase your odds, precede the function name by 'man'.

    Also,

    >banshee.

    So banshee is your compiler. I'm not familiar with it.

    But I did do your assignment on input text with these three functions: strlen, strstr, and memmove.

    It turned this:
    You can be all that you can be in the army.
    into this:
    You can there all that you can there in the army.
    Is that what you are after?

    [edit]If so, learn to do this:
    http://www.google.com/search?q=man+strlen
    http://www.google.com/search?q=man+strstr
    http://www.google.com/search?q=man+memmove

    Why not the official Cppreference?

    I'd pretty much prefer the real official reference for C.
    JTC1/SC22/WG14 - C
    Grab n1124.pdf.

    Or maybe see if you can find a C++ draft here:
    JTC1/SC22/WG21 - The C++ Standards Committee

    Or maybe http://dinkumware.com/
