NAMEmemchr, memrchr, rawmemchr - scan memory for a character
#include <string.h>void *memchr(const void *s, int c, size_t n);void *memrchr(const void *s, int c, size_t n);void *rawmemchr(const void *s, int c);
Feature Test Macro Requirements for glibc (see feature_test_macros(7)):
DESCRIPTIONThe memchr() function scans the initial nbytes of the memory area pointed to by sfor the first instance of c. Both cand the bytes of the memory area pointed to by sare interpreted as unsigned char.
The memrchr() function is like the memchr() function, except that it searches backward from the end of the nbytes pointed to by sinstead of forward from the beginning.
The rawmemchr() function is similar to memchr(): it assumes (i.e., the programmer knows for certain) that an instance of clies somewhere in the memory area starting at the location pointed to by s, and so performs an optimized search for c(i.e., no use of a count argument to limit the range of the search). If an instance of cis not found, the results are unpredictable. The following call is a fast means of locating a string's terminating null byte:
char *p = rawmemchr(s, aq\0aq);
RETURN VALUEThe memchr() and memrchr() functions return a pointer to the matching byte or NULL if the character does not occur in the given memory area.
VERSIONSrawmemchr() first appeared in glibc in version 2.1.
