Replace a character c1 with c2 and c2 with c1 in a string S

Given a string S, c1 and c2. Replace character c1 with c2 and c2 with c1.

Examples:

Input : grrksfoegrrks,
        c1 = e, c2 = r 
Output : geeksforgeeks 

Input : ratul,
        c1 = t, c2 = h 
Output : rahul

Traverse through the string and check for the occurrences of c1 and c2. If c1 is found then replace it with c2 and else if c2 is found replace it with c1.
