yes. me again :P and this is yet another question for string manipulation in c.
I've searched this forum, but I didn't find sth helpful unluckily. So there I go:
char *path = "/home/user/a_DIR/abc"
and I want to write a code to replace a_DIR with yet_another_DIR..
so path_new would be
char *path_new = "/home/users/yet_another_DIR/abc"
i tried man string and then man every function mention there. I think i could use a combination of them to make the above.<?> I'm not sure.. if you want you can help
thank you very much
ps. I 've tried some stuff with strstr but wasn't able to do have the wanted result
Doing this sort of thing in memory and from harddisk are different(in C at least) as you can not safely update a file by doing a replace. So normally another couple of steps are involved, so the process becomes:
Read the file and store in memory
Manipulate the stored version
Write the whole memory version to file overwriting the previous version.
