    First your question has nothing to do with the Visual C++ Programming, So I will now move this thread to the appropriate forum.
    Second, since you are trying to use std::string why don't you want to look at the std::string methods?

    Code:
    string title = "  "Rebecca"  "Alfred Hitchcock" ";
    This is not a valid string. If you want " inside of " then you need to escape the quote or alternatively have 'Rebecca' etc rather than "Rebecca".

    Either
    Code:
    string title = "  \"Rebecca\"  \"Alfred Hitchcock\" ";
    string title = "  'Rebecca'  'Alfred Hitchcock' ";
    Is this a homework assignment?

    Hint: Look at find() and substr() string methods.

    The simplest and often forgotten option is to just scan the string char by char and do what ever you like with it.

    There's a level of abstraction available here with find and substr that I think would be better than a lower level scanning of the string char by char to find those quotes and the substrings between them.

    For the OP requirement, I agree.
