I have strings with the following format

"ABSCD 1M" or "GSFDG 3M" or "TTTGF 30Y"

I'm using string class. The 7th character will always be a number. How do I change the strings to show
"ABSCD (1M)" or "GSFDG (3M)" or "TTTGF (30Y)"

Thanks

The idea would be to locate the blank, insert the bracket after it and then append another one to the end, e.g.

#include <string>
#include <iostream>
using namespace std;

string str = "ABSCD 1M";
int pos;

pos = str.find(" ");

if ( -1 == pos) { // not found

    // error
}

str.insert(pos + 1, "("); // insert bracket after blank
str.append(")"); // append other bracket

cout << str.c_str() << endl;
