MirOS Manual: index(3), strchr(3)

STRCHR(3)                  BSD Programmer's Manual                   STRCHR(3)


     strchr, index - locate first occurrence of a character in a string


     #include <string.h>

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

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


     The strchr() function locates the first occurrence of the character c in
     the string s. The terminating NUL character is considered part of the
     string. If c is '\0', strchr() locates the terminating '\0'.

     The index() function is an old synonym for strchr().


     The strchr() function returns a pointer to the located character or NULL
     if the character does not appear in the string.


     After the following call to strchr(), p will point to the string "oobar":

           char *p;
           char *s = "foobar";

           p = strchr(s, 'o');


     memchr(3), strcspn(3), strpbrk(3), strrchr(3), strsep(3), strspn(3),
     strstr(3), strtok(3)


     The strchr() function conforms to ANSI X3.159-1989 ("ANSI C").

     The index() function is deprecated and shouldn't be used in new code.
