NAME

       strsep - extract token from string

SYNOPSIS

       #include <string.h>

       char *strsep(char **stringp, const char *delim);

DESCRIPTION

       The  strsep()  function  returns the next token from the string stringp
       which is delimited by delim.  The  token  is  terminated  with  a  `\0'
       character and stringp is updated to point past the token.

RETURN VALUE

       The  strsep() function returns a pointer to the token, or NULL if delim
       is not found in stringp.

NOTES

       The strsep() function was introduced as  a  replacement  for  strtok(),
       since  the  latter  cannot  handle  empty  fields.   (However, strtok()
       conforms to ANSI-C and hence is more portable.)
