Newbie - Returning Strings ?

I am just learning C. How do I return a string to a calling
function ?
I wish to call a function from main and have this function
prompt the user for a 'city code' and then search a
valid codes table. When the user enters a valid code
I wish to return this string value to main and then pass
it to subsequent functions.
Thanks in advance...Neil (carsonn@psac.com)

This is the layout of a function returning a string.
In the function you create a string s.
At the end of the function you return s.

char *function()
{
   char *s;
   your code
   return s
}
