Simply compare the last n characters using std::string::compare:

#include <iostream>

bool hasEnding (std::string const &fullString, std::string const &ending) {
    if (fullString.length() >= ending.length()) {
        return (0 == fullString.compare (fullString.length() - ending.length(), ending.length(), ending));
    } else {
        return false;
    }
}

int main () {
    std::string test1 = "binary";
    std::string test2 = "unary";
    std::string test3 = "tertiary";
    std::string test4 = "ry";
    std::string ending = "nary";

    std::cout << hasEnding (test1, ending) << std::endl;
    std::cout << hasEnding (test2, ending) << std::endl;
    std::cout << hasEnding (test3, ending) << std::endl;
    std::cout << hasEnding (test4, ending) << std::endl;

    return 0;
}
