NAME

strxfrm - string transformation  

SYNOPSIS

#include <string.h>size_t strxfrm(char *dest, const char *src, size_t n);
 

DESCRIPTION

The strxfrm() function transforms the srcstring into a form such that the result of strcmp(3) on two strings that have been transformed with strxfrm() is the same as the result of strcoll(3) on the two strings before their transformation. The first nbytes of the transformed string are placed in dest. The transformation is based on the program's current locale for category LC_COLLATE. (See setlocale(3)).  

RETURN VALUE

The strxfrm() function returns the number of bytes required to store the transformed string in destexcluding the terminating null byte (aq\0aq). If the value returned is nor more, the contents of destare indeterminate.
