Get substring

How would I go about retrieving a substring position ONLY if it is after another substring? For instance, take the example below: if(val("100")) { } How would I retrieve the first paranthesis after "val"?

Find the first occurence of "val" and add to that pointer the length of "val".Now you have a new string that starts after "val",so search for the first occurence of "(" in that string.

Something like this:


char str[255];
char *str2;
int strpos;
strcpy(str,"val(100)");

str2=strstr(str,"val")+strlen("val");//Find the first substring
str2=strstr(str2,"(");//Search only after that substring
strpos=(str2-str);//Get the position of second substring
