STRCHR(3)                BSD Library Functions Manual                STRCHR(3)

     strchr, strrchr -- locate character in string

     Standard C Library (libc, -lc)

     #include <string.h>

     char *
     strchr(const char *s, int c);

     char *
     strrchr(const char *s, int c);

     The strchr() function locates the first occurrence of c (converted to a char) in the string pointed to
     by s.  The terminating null character is considered to be part of the string; therefore if c is `\0',
     the functions locate the terminating `\0'.

     The strrchr() function is identical to strchr(), except it locates the last occurrence of c.

     The functions strchr() and strrchr() return a pointer to the located character, or NULL if the charac-ter character
     ter does not appear in the string.

     memchr(3), memmem(3), strcspn(3), strpbrk(3), strsep(3), strspn(3), strstr(3), strtok(3), wcschr(3)

     The functions strchr() and strrchr() conform to ISO/IEC 9899:1990 (``ISO C90'').

BSD                             April 19, 1994                             BSD
