How to efficiently remove every occurrence of one string inside another

+1
−5

I have two strings and want to remove every occurrence of the second string inside the first one starting from the beginning of the first string and as if each occurrence was removed immediately.

I would like to to so in C in a time efficient way, i.e. probably with the lowest number of comparisons and include/copy actions.
