NAME

string.h - string operations

SYNOPSIS

#include <string.h>

DESCRIPTION

Some of the functionality described on this reference page extends the ISO C standard. Applications shall define the appropriate feature test macro (see the System Interfaces volume of IEEE Std 1003.1-2001, Section 2.2, The Compilation Environment) to enable the visibility of these symbols in this header.

The <string.h> header shall define the following:
NULL Null pointer constant.
size_t As described in <stddef.h> .

The following shall be declared as functions and may also be defined as macros. Function prototypes shall be provided.

void *memccpy(void *restrict, const void *restrict, int, size_t);

void *memchr(const void *, int, size_t); int memcmp(const void *, const void *, size_t); void *memcpy(void *restrict, const void *restrict, size_t); void *memmove(void *, const void *, size_t); void *memset(void *, int, size_t); char *strcat(char *restrict, const char *restrict); char *strchr(const char *, int); int strcmp(const char *, const char *); int strcoll(const char *, const char *); char *strcpy(char *restrict, const char *restrict); size_t strcspn(const char *, const char *);

char *strdup(const char *);

char *strerror(int);

int *strerror_r(int, char *, size_t);

size_t strlen(const char *); char *strncat(char *restrict, const char *restrict, size_t); int strncmp(const char *, const char *, size_t); char *strncpy(char *restrict, const char *restrict, size_t); char *strpbrk(const char *, const char *); char *strrchr(const char *, int); size_t strspn(const char *, const char *); char *strstr(const char *, const char *); char *strtok(char *restrict, const char *restrict);

char *strtok_r(char *, const char *, char **);

size_t strxfrm(char *restrict, const char *restrict, size_t);

Inclusion of the <string.h> header may also make visible all symbols from <stddef.h>.

The following sections are informative.

APPLICATION USAGE

None.

RATIONALE

None.

FUTURE DIRECTIONS
