STRSTR(3)                   BSD Programmer's Manual                  STRSTR(3)

NAME
     strstr - locate a substring in a string

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

     char *
     strstr(const char *big, const char *little);

DESCRIPTION
     The strstr() function locates the first occurrence of the null-terminated
     string little in the null-terminated string big. If little is the empty
     string, strstr() returns big; if little occurs nowhere in big, strstr()
     returns NULL; otherwise strstr() returns a pointer to the first character
     of the first occurrence of little.
