memrchr


SYNOPSIS
       #include <string.h>

       void *memchr(const void *s, int c, size_t n);

       void *memrchr(const void *s, int c, size_t n);

       void *rawmemchr(const void *s, int c);

       memrchr(), rawmemchr(): _GNU_SOURCE

DESCRIPTION
       The  memchr()  function  scans  the  initial n bytes of the memory area
       pointed to by s for the first instance of c.  Both c and the  bytes  of
       the memory area pointed to by s are interpreted as unsigned char.

       The  memrchr()  function  is like the memchr() function, except that it
       searches backward from the end of the n bytes pointed to by  s  instead
       of forward from the beginning.

       The  rawmemchr() function is similar to memchr(): it assumes (i.e., the
       programmer knows for certain) that an instance of c lies  somewhere  in
       the  memory  area starting at the location pointed to by s, and so per-
       forms an optimized search for c (i.e., no use of a  count  argument  to
       limit  the range of the search).  If an instance of c is not found, the
       results are unpredictable.  The following  call  is  a  fast  means  of
       locating a string's terminating null byte:

           char *p = rawmemchr(s, '\0');

RETURN VALUE
       The  memchr()  and memrchr() functions return a pointer to the matching
       byte or NULL if the character does not occur in the given memory area.

       The rawmemchr() function returns a pointer to the matching byte, if one
       is found.  If no matching byte is found, the result is unspecified.

VERSIONS
       rawmemchr() first appeared in glibc in version 2.1.

       memrchr() first appeared in glibc in version 2.2.

       2.1.91.
