Linux 2.6 - man page for strnlen (linux section 3)

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

NAME
       strnlen - determine the length of a fixed-size string

SYNOPSIS
       #include <string.h>

       size_t strnlen(const char *s, size_t maxlen);

   Feature Test Macro Requirements for glibc (see feature_test_macros(7)):

       strnlen():
	   Since glibc 2.10:
	       _XOPEN_SOURCE >= 700 || _POSIX_C_SOURCE >= 200809L
	   Before glibc 2.10:
	       _GNU_SOURCE

DESCRIPTION
       The  strnlen() function returns the number of bytes in the string pointed to by s, exclud-
       ing the terminating null byte ('\0'), but at most maxlen.  In doing this, strnlen()  looks
       only at the first maxlen bytes at s and never beyond s+maxlen.

RETURN VALUE
       The  strnlen() function returns strlen(s), if that is less than maxlen, or maxlen if there
       is no null byte ('\0') among the first maxlen bytes pointed to by s.

CONFORMING TO
       POSIX.1-2008.
