rawmemchr


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  first  n  bytes of the memory area
       pointed to by s for the character c.  The first byte to match c (inter-
       preted as an unsigned character) stops the operation.

       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 the character c  lies  somewhere  in
       the  string  s, and so performs an optimized search for the character c
       (i.e., no checking for the terminating null byte, or use  of  an  argu-
       ment,  n, to limit the range of the search).  If the character c is not
       in the string s, then rawmemchr() may proceed to search beyond the  end
       of  the string, and the result is unspecified.  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
