rindex(3)                BSD Library Functions Manual                rindex(3)


NAME

     rindex -- locate character in string


LIBRARY

     Standard C Library (libc, -lc)


SYNOPSIS

     #include <strings.h>

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


DESCRIPTION

     The rindex() function locates the last character matching c (converted to
     a char) in the null-terminated string s.


RETURN VALUES

     A pointer to the character is returned if it is found; otherwise, NULL is
     returned.  If c is `\0', rindex() locates the terminating `\0'.

HISTORY

     A rindex() function appeared in Version 6 AT&T UNIX.  Its prototype
     existed previously in <string.h> before it was moved to <strings.h> for
     IEEE Std 1003.1-2001 (``POSIX.1'') compliance.
