You may want to have a look at the strtok function. Its has some drawbacks
(stores internal state so not thread safe, destroys the string passed to the

There is no easy fix or simple change that makes your fuction work. My
suggestion is to rewrite the function based on the conio library. The debugger
module that comes with the source package contains some simple text input
