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(3) on two strings that have been transformed  with
       strxfrm()  is  the  same as the result of strcoll(3) 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 null byte
       ('\0').  If the value returned is n or more, the contents of  dest  are
       indeterminate.

CONFORMING TO

       SVr4, 4.3BSD, C89, C99.

NOTES

       In  the  "POSIX"  or "C" locales strxfrm() is equivalent to copying the
       string with strncpy(3).
