C programming function

Question description

Search for text 

By using bool find_text_here(char msg[], int here, char text[], int text_length); 
Give the code of function which determines whether the text_length characters of text[] are found in msg[] starting at index here. In other words, whether text[] appears as a sub-array within msg[], beginning at here. If, for every element of text[], text[i] == msg[here + i], then we have found the text and the function returns true. Otherwise the function returns false. 

You may assume that this function is called in such a way that the array bounds of msg[] will not be 
violated. That is, it will never be the case that (here + text_length) exceeds the length of msg[]. 

const int TEXT_LENGTH = 3; 
char msg[] = {'s', 't', 'u', 'd', 'y'}; 
char text[TEXT_LENGTH] = {'t', 'u', 'd'}; 
for (int i = 0; i < 3; ++i) 

if (find_text_here(msg, i, text, TEXT_LENGTH)) 

cout << "true" << endl; 


cout << "false" << endl; 

Output: false
