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).
