C++ Program to Remove Specific Character from the String

This C++ Program which removes a given character from the string. The program takes a string and the character to be removed as the input, uses standard library remove( ) algorithm for returning a range of elements with all the elements equal to the character removed which when passed to the standard library algorithm erase( ) erases the character from the entire string.

Here is source code of the C++ program which removes a given character from the string. The C++ program is successfully compiled and run on a Linux system. The program output is also shown below.

  15.     std::cout << "\nEnter the character : ";
  16.     std::cin >> c;
  17.     /* Removing character c from s */
  18.     s.erase(std::remove(s.begin(), s.end(), c), s.end());
  19.     std::cout << "\nString after removing the character "
  20.               << c << " : " << s;

$ g++ main.cpp
$ ./a.out
Enter the string : Mediterranzean
Enter the character : z
String after removing the character z : Mediterranean
