Arduino String Seperation

First off, please moan at me if i have posted this to the wrong section. I am new. :-[

My query is that I have a device that returns numbers like this: 0001000 how can I separate this up into 7 strings simply as the only way I can think of is if statements.

Thank you very much for your time LC

Assuming you have something like:

  char *mynumber = "0001000";

You can access the individual characters of the string:

char digit1 = *mynumber;
char digit2 = *(mynumber+1);
  // or
char digit1 = mynumber[0];
char digit7 = mynumber[6];

(but notice that they're now characters, and not strings anymore.)

Thank You ;)
