In addition to strtok which was already mentioned, your platform may provide a regcomp function for regular expressions:
#include <stdio.h> #include <stdlib.h> #include <sys/types.h> #include <regex.h> int main(void) { char *header = "This is a sample header\nNumber: 12345\nThis is ano +ther line\n"; char *number = NULL; regex_t re; regmatch_t pmatch[2]; int retval; regcomp(&re, "^Number: (.+)", REG_EXTENDED | REG_NEWLINE); retval = regexec(&re, header, sizeof(pmatch)/sizeof(*pmatch), pmatc +h, 0); if(retval == 0 && pmatch[1].rm_so != -1) { size_t len = pmatch[1].rm_eo - pmatch[1].rm_so; number = malloc(len + 1); memcpy(number, header + pmatch[1].rm_so, len); number[len] = '\0'; printf("Number is %s\n", number); } else { printf("Match failed\n"); } regfree(&re); free(number); return 0; }
No error checking is done and number is stored as a string, atoi()/strtol() family can turn it into an integer.

Use:  <p> text here (a paragraph) </p>
and:  <code> code here </code>
to format your post; it's "PerlMonks-approved HTML":

  • Are you posting in the right place? Check out Where do I post X? to know for sure.
  • Posts may use any of the Perl Monks Approved HTML tags. Currently these include the following:
    <code> <a> <b> <big> <blockquote> <br /> <dd> <dl> <dt> <em> <font> <h1> <h2> <h3> <h4> <h5> <h6> <hr /> <i> <li> <nbsp> <ol> <p> <small> <strike> <strong> <sub> <sup> <table> <td> <th> <tr> <tt> <u> <ul>
  • Snippets of code should be wrapped in <code> tags not <pre> tags. In fact, <pre> tags should generally be avoided. If they must be used, extreme care should be taken to ensure that their contents do not have long lines (<70 chars), in order to prevent horizontal scrolling (and possible janitor intervention).
  • Want more info? How to link or or How to display code and escape characters are good places to start.
