Remove all occurrences of a character in a string

Given a string. Write a program to remove all the occurrences of a character in the string.

Examples:

Input : s = "geeksforgeeks"
        c = 'e'
Output : s = "gksforgks"


Input : s = "geeksforgeeks"
        c = 'g'
Output : s = "eeksforeeks"

The idea is to maintain an index of resultant string.

void removeChar(char *s, int c){
  
    int j, n = strlen(s);
    for (int i=j=0; i<n; i++)
       if (s[i] != c)
          s[j++] = s[i];
      
    s[j] = '\0';
}
  
int main()
{
   char s[] = "geeksforgeeks";
   removeChar(s, 'g');
   cout << s;
   return 0;
