NAME

       strspn, strcspn - get length of a prefix substring

SYNOPSIS

       #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 segment of s which
       consist only of bytes from accept.

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