    Word Find

    Does anyone know the source code in C for the simple wordfind program?(The one only capable of seraching words within a file in a horizontal and reversed horizontal direction)
    I'm supposed to add more features to this program and rewrite it in Java environment.

    You'd have to load the file into memory (a string), then you could use strstr() or some other type function.

    Sure, what's the question.

    What's wrong with writing the simple one youself?

    I mean, if you can't, what makes you think adding extra features is going to be any easier?

    It's a lot easier to add features to your own code, so by the time you've understood someone elses, you would have had time to implement your own.
    If you dance barefoot on the broken glass of undefined behaviour, you've got to expect the occasional cut.
    If at first you don't succeed, try writing your phone number on the exam paper.
