By Alex Allain This lesson will discuss C-style strings, which you may have already seen in the array tutorial. In fact, C-style strings are really arrays of chars with a little bit of special sauce to indicate where the string ends.
I'm certain that you will easily figure out how they work, and with your vivid imaginations will come up with examples of use. Regular Expressions with the Boost Library Notes: This section assumes that you are familiar with regular expressions at least at an intermediate level ; I provide very brief explanations of the regular expressions used, mostly as a reminder; if you are unfamiliar with these, I could recommend this siteor Wikipedia's page on regular expressions.
Regular expressions provide a mechanism for pattern matching between two strings; a regular expression is a fragment of text a string defining a pattern that describes a family of fragments of text.
This pattern may be used to determine if another string matches it i. This is a much more flexible and powerful tool than the basic search facilities that I presented in the previous section.
A pattern with several components or several conditions can be specified in a single operation, providing extra flexibility. A simple example of pattern matching is the following: The user could enter it in the form of first name followed by last name e.
You want your program to determine which form the user entered the full name in, under the assumption that if there is no comma, then it is first name followed by last name. This is very simple to do with find, but I will use it for this example, since it illustrates quite nicely the use of regular expressions.
Regular expressions imply pattern matching, so we express the problem in terms of a pattern for which we want to determine if the given string the name that the user entered matches it. The pattern in question is very simple: The preceding item in this case is a dot, which means any character.
So, the pattern above is matched by any string that contains a sequence of any number of characters, followed by comma, followed by a space, followed by a sequence of any number of characters. This simple pattern matching based on the regular expression ". We notice that there are many other examples of strings that match the pattern, even though they are not really intended to pass the validation: The approach of a simple name.
With regular expressions, however, it is as simple as coming up with a more precise regular expression describing more specifically the pattern that we want: The program below uses the Boost Library regular expression facilities to validate a full name with the regular expression given above.
The color highlight indicates the lines that are directly related to the Boost Library regular expressions facilities.We can write functions ourselves in C, but we will cover that later.
You have seen that to use printf() one puts text, surrounded by quotes, in between the parentheses. We call the text surrounded by quotes a literal string (or just a string), and we call that string an argument to printf.
Strings and String Manipulation in C++. C++ strings allow you to directly initialize, assign, compare, and reassign with the intuitive operators, as well as printing and reading (e.g., from the user), as shown in the example below: suppose that a program asks the user to enter their fullname.
The user could enter it in the form of first. Program to Check String is Palindrome or not in C++. A Palindrome String is a String that remains the same when its character are reversed.
Like saas, for example: we take saas and reverse it, after revers it is same as original.

In C programming, array of characters is called a string. A string is terminated by a null character /kaja-net.com example: "c string tutorial" Here, "c string tutorial" is a string.
