replace_filename man page

replace_filename — Replaces path+filename with a new filename tail. Allegro game programming library.


#include <allegro.h>

char *replace_filename(char *dest, const char *path, const char *filename, int size);


Replaces the specified path+filename with a new filename tail, storing at most `size' bytes into the `dest' buffer. You can use the same buffer both as input and output because Allegro internally works on a copy of the input before touching `dest'. Example:

char name[200];
get_executable_name(name, sizeof(name));
replace_filename(name, name, "sound.dat", sizeof(name));

Return Value

Returns a copy of the `dest' parameter.
