Hi I have a string in the form of

:aaaa:bbbb:ccccccc:

How can I get substrings like "aaaa", "bbbb" "ccccccc"

Note that there are three substrings, divided by a colun sign.

Thanks

what is the problem
//str is your string
char*sub1;
char*sub2;
char*sub3;
int i=1;//your string starts with ':'
int j;

//then:
j=i;
while(str[i]!=':')
   i++;
//allocate the memory
sub1=new char[i-j+1];
for(int index=j;index<=i;index++)
   sub1[index-j]=str[index];
sub1[index-j]='\0';

and the same for rest two


i hope i didn't do your homework
