Question description

Just a quick question on how to replace strings. I am not getting it. Professor says use the find() function to get the starting index of the string, and the length() function to tell you how many characters need to be replaced. This should be just literally 1-2 lines of code, don't think it's difficult if you know what you're doing. The bolded text below is my attempt, not the answer.


// Replaces part of a string

string StringReplace(string s, string textToReplace, string replaceWith)


    return s.replace(s.find(textToReplace, 0), s.length(), replaceWith);

    return ""; // stub
