How To Insert A String Into Another String In A C++ App

How can I use insert() method of std::string in my C++ app? How can I insert a string into another string? Can we insert a char array into a string? How can I insert number of chars into a string? Is it possible to insert a substring of a string into another string? Here are the answers with C++ examples.

What is a string in a C++ app?

In a C++, app in addition to int, float, double there is another data type, string, that we use for alphanumeric variables. In C++ there are several typedefs for common character types are provided: String types are defined in header <string>.

strings are the string class for byte characters represented with the keyword string. Alphanumeric characters are stored and displayed in string forms. In other words, string stores alphanumeric text with 1-byte chars, called ASCII chars. Strings are the instantiation of the basic_string class template that uses char as the character type. We can define a string as below,

string has methods to assign, copy, align, replace or to operate with other strings. These methods can be used in all string methods with their appropriate syntax. We can insert a string to another string in different methods. Let’s see some of most used methods.

How to insert a string into another string in C++ with the insert() method?

insert() method of std::string, inserts the characters of string in the given range at the position index. We can use the insert() method without the range parameter, just give the insert position index (insert_position, where to insert) and the string to be inserted (insert_str). Here is the syntax of the insert() method,

Here is an example of how we can use insert() method in C++

and the output will be,

How to insert a string from a starting index into another string at a specific position with the C++ insert() method

insert() method of std::string, inserts the characters of string in the given range at the position index. We can use insert() method without the range parameter, just give the insert position (insert_position, where to insert,) and the string (s) to be inserted then where to start (start_from) to be copied from. Here is syntax of a insert() method that can be used with a starting index (start_from),

Here is a example how we can use insert() method with in this given syntax, see example below,

and the output will be,

How to insert a String using a range into another String at a specific position with the C++ app insert() method

insert() method of std::string, inserts the characters of string in the given range at the position index. We can use insert() method without the range parameter, just give the insert position (insert_position, where to insert,) and the string (s) to be inserted then where to start (start_from) to be copied from. Here is syntax of a insert() method that can be used with a starting index (start_from),

Here is a example how we can use insert() method with in this given syntax, see example below,

There are many other ways to use insert methods(). Note that we can also use these insert() methods to append wstring in C++.
