im trying to separate words from a sting, whem the code replaces the space for the ' \0' i need to increment the "pos" so i can continue read the array the code so far is this

#include <stdio.h>
#include <stdlib.h>
#include <string.h>
#define MAX 100
void separa_pal(char text[]);

int main(int argc, char** argv)
    char text[MAX] = "hello my darling";
    printf("text: %s \n", text);
    printf("%s\n", text);

void separa_pal(char text[])
    int i = 0;
    int pos = 0;
    pos = text[i]; //the problem is here
    while(text[i] != '\0')
        if(text[i] == ' ')
                text[i] = '\0';
                pos = text[i + 1]; // and here

btw i know of strtok but i need to do it without pointers so if you guys can help me i would apreciate it :)

Whenever you define a string as

char str[]="Hello\0MIster\0HowAre You?";

Every time the compiler stops outputing the characters of the string to the output console once it encounters a '\0' character.So even if you put '\0' character in place of ' ' character this won't do any good.
Instead you can use an array of character arrays and store every generated string in order.
