grg99 is right what function but ill explain:

void TestFunction()
{
char* A = "there is a UDP";       // Your first orig string
char* B = "UDP";                      // Your second string you're looking for

char* result = strstr(A,B);         // strstr returns a pointer of char* of the first whole occurance

if(result)                // if the pointer actually has a location now ie: the WHOLE string was found
   ;                        // String was found, so do what ever you want now
else
   ;                        // String was not found, so dont do what was planned
}

All you guys said is correct in C.
But, if you use C++ (I suppose you do) and you use 'string' class to store your strings. Then you should use find() method of the class string:

string A =  "there is a UDP";
string B = "UDP";

if (A.find(B) != -1)
     cout << "String A contains string B" << endl;
else
     cout << "String B was not found in string A" << endl;

But how come i cannot declare String??
There's an error: Undeclared identifier "string"

i have already included string.h

#include <iostream>
#include <fstream.h>
#include <stdlib.h>
#include <STRING>

int main () {

String A;
return 0;
}

The method is:
  #include <string.h>
  using namespace std;

Done
