String Handling Programming Exercise 4 in C/C++

What is String in C/C++?

The string can be defined as the combination of characters. String handling is used to manipulate strings such as finding a number of characters in a file or comparing two files. A string is commonly used with file handling.

File is a sequence of bytes. Input and output streams are used to store and retrieve strings in file.

Syntax of String

Data_type var_name[length];

For example

char name[40];

In the above statement, we declare a variable name with a length of 40 characters.

This variable occupies 40 bytes in memory.

One character occupies one byte in memory.

In other words, if we want to store a single character in computer we require one byte.

Exercise Question 4

Write a program that inputs a string and displays it as triangle.
For example, if the user enters World, the program displays the following:
 W o
 W o r
 W o r l
 W o r l d

using namespace std;

	char str[100];
	int i, j, len;
	cout<<"Enter a string:";
	cin.getline(str, 100);
	len = strlen(str);
	for(i=0; i<len; i++)
		for(j=0; j<=i; j++)

Following Functions are commonly used in String Handling

getline() Function

getline function is used to input a string from user. following is the syntax of this function


strcpy() Function

strcpy() function is used to copy a string. Following is the syntax


strrev() Function

This function is used to reverse a string. 



strcmp() Function

This Function is used to compare two strings.
