WCSSTR(3)                  Linux Programmer's Manual                 WCSSTR(3)



NAME
       wcsstr - locate a substring in a wide-character string

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

       wchar_t *wcsstr(const wchar_t *haystack, const wchar_t *needle);

DESCRIPTION
       The wcsstr() function is the wide-character equivalent of the strstr(3)
       function.  It searches for the first occurrence of  the  wide-character
       string  needle (without its terminating L'\0' character) as a substring
       in the wide-character string haystack.

RETURN VALUE
       The wcsstr() function returns a pointer to the first occurrence of nee-
       dle  in  haystack.   It returns NULL if needle does not occur as a sub-
       string in haystack.

       Note the special case: If needle is the  empty  wide-character  string,
       the return value is always haystack itself.

CONFORMING TO
       C99.
