strchr(3)                BSD Library Functions Manual                strchr(3)


NAME

     strchr, strrchr -- locate character in string


LIBRARY

     Standard C Library (libc, -lc)


SYNOPSIS

     #include <string.h>

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

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


DESCRIPTION

     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 func-
     tions locate the terminating `\0'.

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


RETURN VALUES

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

STANDARDS

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