* GUIDELINES:
* - Look at main(): it calls various functions.
* - You are asked to implement two functions: str_cpy() and str_cat(). No need
* to implement str_printf() and str_free()
* - Reading main() carefully will allow to understand str_cpy() and str_cat()
* signature and usage.
* - The code you write needs to be "library quality"; as good as you would
* expect a good libc to implement such functions.
* - At the top of the page, you see 4 includes - indicating the functions that
* can be used to implement str_cpy() and str_cat().
* - You have 15 minutes to implement the whole solution.
*
* FYI: it is possible to implement str_cpy() and str_cat() efficiently in no
* more than 7 lines of code per function, and in less than 5 minutes.
*

Code:
#include <stdio.h>
#include <stdlib.h>
#include <string.h>
#include <stdarg.h>

int main(int argc, char *argv[])
{
    char *s = NULL;
    str_cpy(&s, "Hola Hola");
    str_cpy(&s, s+5);
    str_cat(&s, " Mundo");
    str_printf(&s, "%s!", s);
    puts(s); /* result: "Hola Mundo!" */
    str_free(&s);
    return 0;
}

I'm pretty sure I could do it, but isn't the point that YOU do it? After all, if you get the job, you can't be posting to Go4Expert "This is my job for today, can someone help me with it?" Or are you planning also to post "This is my salary, can someone help me spend it?"
