strstr : source code

Hello and happy new year.

I am looking for strstr() code.
Every code I found had a bug!

could you help either find the bug or just post the correct one.
thanks a lot.

char *strstr2(char string1[], char string2[])
{// http://www.eskimo.com/~scs/cclass/notes/sx10d.html

    char *start, *p1, *p2;
    for(start = &string1[0]; *start != '\0'; start++)
        {        /* for each position in input string... */
        p1 = string2;    /* prepare to check for pattern string there */
        p2 = start;
        while(*p1 != '\0')
            if(*p1 != *p2)    /* characters differ */
        if(*p1 == '\0')        /* found match */
            return start;

    return NULL;


RE: strstr : source code

What bug (as in, it seems to work for me)?

Please use the [code][/code] tags when posting code.


RE: strstr : source code

MS VC++ 6.0 RTL source:


char * __cdecl strstr (
        const char * str1,
        const char * str2
        char *cp = (char *) str1;
        char *s1, *s2;

        if ( !*str2 )
            return((char *)str1);

        while (*cp)
                s1 = cp;
                s2 = (char *) str2;

                while ( *s1 && *s2 && !(*s1-*s2) )
                        s1++, s2++;

                if (!*s2)

You'd think MS would know better than to post-increment when they don't need to use the temporary variable that's created...
