NAME

       strxfrm - string transformation

SYNOPSIS

       #include <string.h>

       size_t strxfrm(char *dest, const char *src, size_t n);

DESCRIPTION

       The  strxfrm() function transforms the src string into a form such that
       the result of strcmp() on two strings that have been  transformed  with
       strxfrm()  is  the  same  as the result of strcoll() on the two strings
       before their transformation.  The first n characters of the transformed
       string  are  placed  in  dest.   The  transformation  is  based  on the
       program’s current locale for category LC_COLLATE.  (See  setlocale(3)).

RETURN VALUE

       The  strxfrm()  function  returns the number of bytes required to store
       the  transformed  string  in  dest  excluding  the   terminating   ‘\0’
       character.   If  the  value returned is n or more, the contents of dest
       are indeterminate.

CONFORMING TO

       SVID 3, BSD 4.3, ISO 9899

NOTES

       In the "POSIX" or "C" locales strxfrm() is equivalent  to  copying  the
       string with strncpy().
