Split a sentence into words in C++

Give a sentence, print different words present in it. Words are separated by space.

Examples:

Input : str = "Geeks for Geeks"
Output : Geeks
         for
         Geeks  
Explanation : All space separated words 
are printed line by line.

Input : str = "a computer science portal"
Output : a
         computer
         science
         portal

Method 1 (Writing our own logic)
We traverse through all characters. If current character is space, we have reached end of a word, we print current word and reset it to empty. Else we append current character to word.

   {
       if (x == ' ')
       {
           cout << word << endl;
           word = "";
       }
       else
       {
           word = word + x;
       }
   
   cout << word << endl;
}
  
// Driver function
int main()
{
    string str = "Geeks for Geeks";
    removeDupWord(str);
    return 0;
}
