Embed text in C code

I hope c coding is ok here.

I am fairly new at c coding.

I simply want to embed some text in the executable.

I tried this but can't find the text using Ghex.

Code:
#include <stdio.h>
const char * S = "andrew";

int main()
{
printf("Hello World!\n");
return 0;
}

Code:
#include <stdio.h>

const char *str = "andrew";

int main()
{
  printf("Hello World! %s\n", str);
  return 0;
}

Text strings won't be embedded in the code, they will reside in the data segment.

Ok.

Can I get it embedded in the code segment where it will be near the top when viewed with a hex editor?

Tricky. Most large-scale architectures separate data and code.

What you might be able to find is the value of the pointer.

Code:
#include <stdio.h>

int main(void)
{
        printf("%p\n", "fixed text");
}

Compile and run that and you'll be given a hexadecimal value. Search for that value in the code segment and you won't find the text itself, but you'll find something which uses it.
