sun string comparison
I am reading strings from file and I have to identify strings that are similar to eachother but on the basis of a substring i-e if a substring of the two/more strings match then the two/more strings would be considered similar.
// Check if the "lineID + remSTr" combination is already in the vector.
// If it is, compare dates and use the lesser one
// how do I compare a substring here? the substring for comparison consists of lineID and remSTr. If lineID and remSTr are similar then the two/more strings would be similar.
vector<ordRecvblock>::iterator it = find(OrdTime.begin(),OrdTime.end(),ordb);
if (it != OrdTime.end())
if (ordb.dateTime < it->dateTime)
cout << it->lineID << ',' << it->dateTime << ',' << it->remSTr << endl;
*it = ordb;
cout << ordb.lineID << ',' << ordb.dateTime << ',' << ordb.remSTr << endl;
