uremove — Removes a character from a string. Allegro game programming library.


#include <allegro.h>

int uremove(char *s, int index);


Removes the character at the specified `index' within the string, sliding the rest of the data back to fill the gap. If `index' is negative, it counts backward from the end of the string. Example:

   int length_in_bytes = ustrsizez(text_string);
   length_in_bytes -= uremove(text_string, -1);

Return Value

Returns the number of bytes by which the trailing part of the string was moved.
