Im wondering what the equivilant to BASIC instr function is. what it does is takes 2 parameters (string 1, string 2) then returns true if the text from string 2 is also in string 1 (or vice-versa, im not positive) then it returns false if theyre not. Im wondering what the equivilant to this in C++ is, its about the only thing keeping me from finishing my project. ive tried strcmpi, but i cant get it to tell if one string is 'inside' the other. thanks for any help!
