I've never used C before and will just be using bits of it (mostly string manipulation) for a project I'm working on...and it doesn't seem very friendly to me as a VB/ASP guy!! \r\n\r\nI need to extract a substring from a string. Here's my string.\r\n\r\n-56-43 5675:5673.777945','456'\r\n\r\nI need to get the 456 out of there. How can I do this? I can't seem to find any basic substring functions in C.
