Just wondering I'm newbie writing C programs and I don't expect to get the entire code here but I was allocated a task/assigment to create a C program that emulates a search engine so I was given a bunch of text files that contains HTML data and I need to be able to scan those files putting aside HTML tags and return/display all the valid words from the file. Now I wonder if someone can give an idea on how would be the best way to assemble a function to do this task. Maybe which C function would be the most appropiate to handle the strings and do the word extraction without touching the tags. Thanks Guys. I really appreciate any help in advance.
