    Find and replace

    I wrote this in javascript already, but ide like to put it in my program also, so how would i do this in c++. Find a certain group of characters and replace it with another.
    <title>Untitled Document</title>
    <meta http-equiv="Content-Type" content="text/html; charset=iso-8859-1">
    <SCRIPT LANGUAGE="JavaScript">
    function replaceChars(entry) {
    out = "."; // replace this
    add = "/n"; // with this
    temp = "" + entry; // temporary holder
    while (temp.indexOf(out)>-1) {
    pos= temp.indexOf(out);
    temp = "" + (temp.substring(0, pos) + add + 
    temp.substring((pos + out.length), temp.length));
    document.subform.text.value = temp;
    <form name="subform">
        <textarea name="text" cols="85" rows="40" wrap="VIRTUAL">Enter Text Here</textarea>
    <input type=button name=action value="Finish" onClick="replaceChars(document.subform.text.value);">

    The STL string class has find() and replace() methods.
