Thread: I have a question about a question

    Default I have a question about a question


    I'm not looking for anyone to do this question for me, but I was wondering if I could get some clarification on what you think this question is asking:

    "Write a program to determine if a given substring exists within a larger string. Both inputs should be entered through console."

    My take - The user enters a string, then the user enters another string. Write a program to see if the second string fits as part of the first string.

    eg. entry 1 - Peter piper picked a peck of pickled peppers
    entry 2 - Ice Hockey

    Write a program to determine that Ice Hockey is not a substring of entry 1.

    does this make sense or am I way off? Any other interpretations? Thanks guys.
