You can use strcpy(). The trick is to figure out the arguments you pass in.

char szTarget[12] = "MyName";

   strcpy( szTarget, "YourName" );  /* Straight replacement */

   /* Change MyName to MyNumber */
   strcpy( &(szTarget[3]), "umber" );

I don't know if this is exactly what you wanted, but it may give you a place to start.

Hello Mr. Kellyji,

Here is another option that you can use for your need.
Ultimately You can use th STRNCPY() Function for this purpose.
e.g. : Suppose you have
 char a[]="amar nath panda";
 char b[15]; and You want to copy the string from 3rd pos. to  the end of the source string.

Sol : Use strncpy(b,3,a);
                printf("\n%s -- %s",a,b);
I think you would like it. Please send your comment at the following E-mail Address.
