    CString split function ?

    anybody knows if theres any function to split a string by a character.. for example i have:
    MessageŽMessageŽMessageŽMessageŽMessageŽMessageŽ.. ..
    and i want to split all by the Ž character and just get "Message" in arrays of CString

    What you are looking for is to separate a string into tokens. This can be accomplished in C using strtok(). Here is the FAQ on strtok . And below is a sample program that seperates user input into tokens based on " "(spaces).
    #include <stdio.h>
    #include <string.h>
    int main(void) {
        int j, i=0; // used to iterate through array
        char userInput[81], *token[80]; //user input and array to hold max possible tokens, aka 80.
        printf("Enter a line of text to be tokenized: ");
        fgets(userInput, sizeof(userInput), stdin);
        token[0] = strtok(userInput, " "); //get pointer to first token found and store in 0
                                           //place in array
        while(token[i]!= NULL) {   //ensure a pointer was found
            token[i] = strtok(NULL, " "); //continue to tokenize the string
        for(j = 0; j <= i-1; j++) {
            printf("%s\n", token[j]); //print out all of the tokens
        return 0;
    And here is my output:
    i don't think most standard compilers support programmers with more than 4 red boxes - Misplaced

    It is my sacred duity to stand in the path of the flood of ignorance and blatant stupidity... - quzah

    Such pointless tricks ceased to be interesting or useful when we came down from the trees and started using higher level languages. - Salem
