<string.h>(P)			    POSIX Programmer's Manual			    <string.h>(P)

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.
