Parsing string...

This is using VC++ 6... I have a char* that has the following format:


I want to parse it and grab the data after the = sign.

For example:

char* s1 will contain the text "sometext", etc.

What is the best way to take care of this?

Use CString class to store the data, and then you can easily parse the data.


CString Line1 = "MyField1=sometext\r\n";

CString Value = Line1.Mid(Line1.Find('=') + 1);

If you want to use C style string, then you can use strtok function to parse the data.

Using CString you may also want to TrimRight() to remove the trailing newline :-)
