STRINGS(3)                 Library Functions Manual                 STRINGS(3)

NAME
     bcmp, bcopy, bzero, ffs, index, rindex, strcasecmp, strncasecmp -- string
     operations

LIBRARY
     Standard C Library (libc, -lc)

SYNOPSIS
     #include <&lt;strings.h>&gt;

     int
     bcmp(const void *b1, const void *b2, size_t len);

     void
     bcopy(const void *src, void *dst, size_t len);

     void
     bzero(void *b, size_t len);

     int
     ffs(int value);

     char *
     index(const char *s, int c);

     char *
     rindex(const char *s, int c);

     int
     strcasecmp(const char *s1, const char *s2);

     int
     strncasecmp(const char *s1, const char *s2, size_t len);

DESCRIPTION
     These functions all live in the strings.h header file.  Except for ffs(),
     they operate on strings.  index(), rindex(), and strcasecmp() need nul-
     terminated strings.

     See the specific manual pages for more information.

     See string(3) for string functions that follow ANSI X3.159-1989
     (``ANSI C89'') or ISO/IEC 9899:1999 (``ISO C99''), bstring(3) for
     functions that operate on strings that are not nul-terminated, and
     bitstring(3) for bit-string manipulation macros.
