    [RESOLVED] finding the offset in a char array

    i have an array of char that looks like this:

    "This_is_my_example_string"

    im splitting the string on every "_" character , but also i want to find the position After the last "_" character and store it on an integer variable

    how can i do that?

    Code:
       Splits = strtok( cBuffer, "_" );
       while( Splits != NULL )
       {
              Splits = strtok( NULL, "_" );
    
       }

    Re: finding the offset in a char array

    If the return value of strtok() is not NULL, then subtract the return value of strtok from the address of the buffer you're searching.

    Edit:

    Sorry, that should be subtract the starting address of the buffer from the return value of strtok.
