Everybody! This is important. In a few days, these forums will be moving over to using the totally sweet Discourse platform. To ensure this migration happens smoothly with no loss of content, these forums are currently in a read-only mode. I do apologize for the inconvenience.

There is never a good time to turn the forums off for an extended period of time, but I promise the new forums will be a billion times better. I'm pretty sure of it.

See you all on the other side in a few days, and if you have any (non-technical) questions, please e-mail me at kirupa@kirupa.com. For technical questions, try to find a tutorial that corresponds to what you are looking for and post in the comments section of that page.

Thread: Help comparing 2 strings a diffrent way

    Help comparing 2 strings a diffrent way

    Hello there,

    How can I do the same task but make this line different.
    this line recently got detected by 2 anti viruses.

    if(!strcmp(szFileName, "C:\\file.exe"))
    how else can this line do the same thing just be different. "C:\\file.exe" must not change

  2. #2
    maybe you can separate the "file.exe" into different strings and combine them for that comparison?

  3. #3
    Make "C:\\file.exe" into a variable, and compare the two variables? If it still gets caught by AV, then it's the string that's the problem, not the statement.

    Vince how've you been?
    If you notice this notice you will notice that this notice is not worth noticing.

    Generate the string at runtime.

    char fileName[32];
    sprintf(fileName, "%s\\%s.%s", "C:", "file", "exe");
    strcmp(szFileName, fileName) ....
