Heya
 
I got a long string from a HTML request. I need to find the following substring within:
 
<&randomtag>
 
However when I'm trying to search it gives me wrong results.
 
If I replace the string with something, not containing "<" ">" it works flawlessly.
 
Relevant code:
(not copied, might have some typos, but works without special characters)
 
 
std::string readBuffer; //longlongstring
std::string starttag;
std::string endtag;
 
size_t sstart;
size_t send;
 
//...................

sstart=readBuffer.find(starttag);
send=redBuffer.find(endtag);
 
correction=readBuffer.substr(sstart,send-sstart);
 
std::cout << correction << std::endl;
 
 
So yeah, if anyone happens to know a way to fix this, I'd very much be greatful Smile | :)
Thanks in advance

Solution 1

1. what do you mean- wrong result?
2. I just tried to run:
std::string readBuffer = "dgsdg sdfgsd sdfg ds <&randomtag> fghhsdfgsd dfgd sdg dfgdg dfg  ghdfh sdfg";
std::string starttag = "<&randomtag>";
std::string endtag = "";
 
size_t sstart;
size_t send;
 
//...................

sstart=readBuffer.find(starttag);
send=readBuffer.find(endtag);
 
std::string correction = readBuffer.substr(sstart,send-sstart);
 
and it worked as expected. correction variable was holding "<&randomtag> fghhsdfgsd dfgd sdg dfgdg dfg ".
