       #include <string.h>

       size_t strspn(const char *s, const char *accept);

       size_t strcspn(const char *s, const char *reject);

DESCRIPTION
       The  strspn()  function calculates the length (in bytes) of the initial
       segment of s which consists entirely of bytes in accept.

       The strcspn() function calculates the length of the initial segment  of
       s which consists entirely of bytes not in reject.

RETURN VALUE
       The  strspn()  function returns the number of bytes in the initial seg-
       ment of s which consist only of bytes from accept.

       The strcspn() function returns the number of bytes in the initial  seg-
       ment of s which are not in the string reject.
