If you have to ask, it's obvious that not anyone can do it, but as I
can do it, I know someone can.

Perhaps you should attempt it and see what you come up with.

What? Why am *I* supposed to do that?

After having opened the files, etc., etc...

if (the word contains "ab" && the word contains "cd")
write the word;

close the files, etc., etc...

Look up for the %s format for fscanf(), and for strstr().

This should do it...

int main(void) {
FILE *open;
char word[64]

open = fopen("file.txt", "r");
if(!open) return -1;

while(fscanf(open, "%s", word) != EOF) {
if((strstr(word, "ab") != NULL) || (strstr(word, "cd") !=
NULL)) {
printf("gotcha [%s] !\n", word);
}
}

fclose(open);
}

The word "about" satisfies the if and will be printed but it does not
meet the criteria specified in the subject.  Only words containing ab
AND cd should be extracted.

At least write: fscanf(open, "%63s", word);
The %s format with no field width is a Really Bad Idea(TM).

The other errors are left as an exercise to the reader :-)

I suggest you at least try code you suggest, or mark it untested.

Obvious Faults:
return -1 is illegal.  Use EXIT_FAILURE and #include <stdlib>.
The test for fscanf should be "== 1".
Failure to return 0 (or EXIT_SUCCESS) at completion.

You are very harsh!  Returning an int != 0, EXIT_SUCCESS or
EXIT_FAILURE is implementation defined so one might call it ill

>  Use EXIT_FAILURE and #include <stdlib>.
>     The test for fscanf should be "== 1".

I agree as a general rule (well, testing for n successful matches) but
in the case of a lone "%s" is it an error?  I can't see how a
conforming fscanf can return anything but EOF or 1.  Even as I type
this I can see library writers checking their code for paths that
return 0 for this format.

>     Nothing makes cd follow ab.

The rather limited specification did not require this.

I see no evidence that he didn't try it; the errors you point out are
ones that could easily be missed by insufficiently careful testing.

> Obvious Faults:
>     return -1 is illegal.  Use EXIT_FAILURE and #include <stdlib>.

return -1 is perfectly legal; it's merely non-portable.

>     The test for fscanf should be "== 1".

Yes, it should, but fscanf with a "%s" option reads the next
space-delimited word, and it will return the value EOF when it reaches
the end of the file.  As far as I tell, it will never return a value
other than 1 or EOF.  Just checking for EOF is poor style, but it
happens to work in this case.

>     Nothing makes cd follow ab.

Is that required?  The only problem statement I've seen is in the
subject header: "How to extract words containing 'ab' & 'cd' in a text
file?".  This could mean either
Extract words containing 'ab' and words containing 'cd'
or
Extract words containig both 'ab' and 'cd'

In either case, I see no implication of a required order (though the
problem statement is bad enough that that may well have been the
intent).

>     Failure to return 0 (or EXIT_SUCCESS) at completion.

Which happens to be harmless on many systems.

What else could it be, other than 1 and EOF?
>    Nothing makes cd follow ab.
So what?

In C99 this is allowed.

And you didn't even say that it should be "%63s", that it prints
words containing "ab" OR  "cd".

Then (not an error, but...):
the test strstr(word, "ab") != NULL hurts my eyes. We are merely
using strstr as a boolean expression, emphatising it is a pointer
is not very useful, also considering that he used if (!open), and
there if (open == NULL) *does* "look better", and does *not*
uselessly make a line 76 characters long, causing it to be wrapped.

How to modify the program so that it can extact words starting with
'ab', ending with 'cd' but not containing 'ef'?

The state machine approach I showed earlier can handle -all- of the
text processing problems that you have posed so far. Did you
try it? Did you research state machines? Once you know how to use
state machines, you will know how to sit down and rattle off the
solution to each of these kinds of questions in about 5 minutes.

State 0: 'a' -> State 1; '\n' -> State 0; otherwise -> State 99
State 1: 'b' -> State 2; '\n' Discard word -> State 0; otherwise -> State 99
State 2: 'c' -> State 3; '\n' Discard word -> State 0; 'e' -> State 9;
otherwise -> State 2
State 3: 'd' -> State 4; '\n' Discard word -> State 0; 'e' -> State 9;
otherwise -> State 2
State 4: '\n' Output word, Discard word -> State 0; 'e' -> State 9;
otherwise -> State 2
State 9: 'f' -> State 99; '\n' Discard word -> State 0;
otherwise -> State 2
State 99: '\n' Discard word -> State 0; otherwise -> State 99

Hi Umesh,

How will you write a program which accepts a word from user and prints
some "blah blah" if it starts with "ab".
similiarly how will you write a program which will print "foo bar"
when it finds "cd" as the last two letters in the word.
and on the similar lines how will you write a program which will do
nothing which finds "ef" anywhere in the word?

Combine all the three tests together.
HTH
Thanks

As far as I can tell umesh sees the world as consisting of a blur of
amorphous things: words and strings and lines and they seem to be synonyms
of some sort or other.  Until he is willing to sit down and decide on
*definitions*  for these three things that have some *invariant* meaning, he
is doomed to wander in the wilderness.

He should finish this table:

word - A word is ...
string - A string is ...
line - A line is ....

He seems to be searching for a needle in a haystack but, unfortunately, he
has no means of identifying what a needle is!

Because, unfortunately he is sitting on the needle.
Umesh, apply simple primary school mathematics to figure out how do
you read a word letter by letter.

Will help, may be...

'!' vs. '.' Is there an advantage to using the '!' notation to represent form/ control relationships? (eg.

I tend to copy the notation style and naming conventions that I see being used in the Help files. That would be Me![text1] for a control on a form. I am of the belief that this notation explicitly refers to a control itself rather than a field in the form's recordset. Here's an example: I have a parts inventory app that uses a "Line" code, which is usually a 3-character abbreviation for a brand name, and is the na...

replacement for '{' and '}' ?
I am still playing around with what kind of syntax I would like to mark up my documents. Are there equivalent long substitutes for { and } when they are not used to describe arguments to functions? Something like \begin{group} and \end{group}. In other words, if I could force myself to write, say, \begin{group} \it ... \end{group} instead of {\it ... }, then I believe I could identify from the markup context what is an argument that belongs to a just invoked macro and what is text. {Of course, in this context, \textit{...} would be better.} No more ambiguity whether a in \myfunction{a} is an argument or just text. Is there a way to make latex barf when it sees an ordinary '{' in text, rather than \begin{group}, but not barf when I want it (to denote macro arguments)?

Does '!=' equivelent to 'is not'
I'm a bit confusing about whether "is not" equivelent to "!=" if a != b: ... if a is not b: ... What's the difference between "is not" and "!=" or they are the same thing? pirata wrote: > I'm a bit confusing about whether "is not" equivelent to "!=" > > if a != b: > ... > > if a is not b: > ... > > > What's the difference between "is not" and "!=" or they are the same thing? No, they are not the same thing. == and != test to see if the *value* of two variables are the same. Like so: >>> a = 'hello world' >>> b = 'hello world' >>> a == b True a and b both have the value of 'hello world', so they are equal is and is not, however, do not test for value equivalence, they test for object identity. In other words, they test to see if the object the two variables reference are the same object in memory, like so: >>> a is b False a and b are assigned to two different objects that happen to have the same value, but nevertheless there are two separate 'hello world' objects in memory, and therefore you cannot say that a *is* b Now look at this: >>> c = d = 'hello world' >>> c == d True >>> c is d True In this case, they are again the same value, but now the is test also shows that they are the same *object* as well, because...

'[OFF]' as in 'offensive'???
Hi, given that 'off-topicness' is indicated as '[OT]' and taking a look at those postings that started the threads indicated as '[OFF]' (which may both be seen as being somewhat offensive) may lead to the conclusion that '[OFF]' stands for offensiveness. I don't think that this is the intended meaning so what actually *does* '[OFF]' mean? I never came across that abbreviation before (although I have been around on the USENET for quite some time) but maybe it is worth knowing?

Converting 'C' to an 'M-file'
After spending some time converting a 'C' program into a MATLAB script file in order to incorporate it into our suite of MATLAB based data processing routines, I am now wondering if I could run the 'C' program in MATLAB? It would need to access data created from another MATLAB script stored locally. I thought translating it into MATLAB would improve it's efficiency as it would be running on MATLAB, but having read something about 'MEX-files' I am becoming uncertain. Any quick-start guide to running 'C' programs as M-file scripts would be most helpful. &q...

difference between ',' and 'a,'
Small question. In gforth is there a difference between the words ',' and 'a,'? I'm thinking not, so perhaps another question, why have both ',' and 'a,'?

In Gforth's cross compiler, "a," is there for addresses, and "," is there for other cells; addresses can then be relocated when loading the image. - anton -- M.
