#include <string.h>
#include <stdlib.h>

int main( void )
{
    char buffer[80];
    char* where;

    strcpy( buffer, "video x-rays" );

    where = strchr( buffer, 'x' );

    if( where == NULL ) {
        printf( "'x' not found\n" );
    } else {
        printf( "'x' found: %s\n", where );
    }
