Hi is it possible to use strtok to parse some data using a string as the first deliminator rather than using punctuation?


for example

data here string a b c d
more data here to disregard string e f g h

so that I only get a b c d e f g h?

Thanks

You can't do that with 'strtok()', since it uses single characters as delimiters, but 'strstr()' can help you here:

const char* get_text_afer_delimiter(cconst char* in, const char* delim) {

  char* p = strstr(in,delim);

  if (!p) return NULL; // 'delim' not found

  return p + strlen(delim);
}

// ...

char* p1 = "data here string a b c d";
char* p2 = "more data here to disregard string e f g h";

const char* p3 = get_text_afer_delimiter(p1, "string "); // include the blank, so the returned pointer points directly to "a b c d"

const char* p4 = get_text_afer_delimiter(p2, "string "); // include the blank, so the returned pointer points directly to "e f g h"
