I just wanted to know the best way to parse the following string.

string temp = "200   SU90";

I would like to end up with everything in the string above before the space.  After that I would like to remove the last character of what is retrieved.  So in the string above I am trying to get "20" as a result.

Just curious the easiest way to do this in c++

thanks

strint temp2 = temp.substr(0, temp.find_first_of(' '));

Sorry:

string temp = "200   SU90";
string temp2 = temp.substr(0, temp.find_first_of(' ') - 1);
