NAME

       string.h - string operations

SYNOPSIS

       #include <string.h>

DESCRIPTION

       Some  of the functionality described on this reference page extends the
       ISO C standard. Applications shall define the appropriate feature  test
       macro  (see  the  System  Interfaces  volume  of  IEEE Std 1003.1-2001,
       Section 2.2, The Compilation Environment) to enable the  visibility  of
       these symbols in this header.

       The <string.h> header shall define the following:

       NULL   Null pointer constant.

       size_t As described in <stddef.h> .

       The following shall be declared as functions and may also be defined as
       macros. Function prototypes shall be provided.

              void    *memccpy(void *restrict, const void *restrict, int, size_t);

              void    *memchr(const void *, int, size_t);
              int      memcmp(const void *, const void *, size_t);
              void    *memcpy(void *restrict, const void *restrict, size_t);
              void    *memmove(void *, const void *, size_t);
              void    *memset(void *, int, size_t);
              char    *strcat(char *restrict, const char *restrict);
              char    *strchr(const char *, int);
              int      strcmp(const char *, const char *);
              int      strcoll(const char *, const char *);
              char    *strcpy(char *restrict, const char *restrict);
              size_t   strcspn(const char *, const char *);

              char    *strdup(const char *);

              char    *strerror(int);

              int     *strerror_r(int, char *, size_t);

              size_t   strlen(const char *);
              char    *strncat(char *restrict, const char *restrict, size_t);
              int      strncmp(const char *, const char *, size_t);
              char    *strncpy(char *restrict, const char *restrict, size_t);
              char    *strpbrk(const char *, const char *);
              char    *strrchr(const char *, int);
              size_t   strspn(const char *, const char *);
              char    *strstr(const char *, const char *);
              char    *strtok(char *restrict, const char *restrict);

              char    *strtok_r(char *, const char *, char **);

              size_t   strxfrm(char *restrict, const char *restrict, size_t);

       Inclusion of the <string.h> header may also make  visible  all  symbols
       from <stddef.h>.
