Applications with Strings and Text

  • Ivor Horton


In this chapter you’ll extend your knowledge of arrays by exploring how you use an array of characters to represent a string. You’ll frequently need to work with a text string as a single entity. C doesn’t provide a string data type. Instead, C uses an array of elements of type char to store a string. This chapter will show you how to create and work with variables that store strings and how the standard library functions greatly simplify string processing.
