NAME
       wcscspn - search a wide-character string for any of a set of wide characters

SYNOPSIS
       #include <wchar.h>

       size_t wcscspn(const wchar_t *wcs, const wchar_t *reject);

DESCRIPTION
       The  wcscspn()  function  is the wide-character equivalent of the strcspn(3) function.  It
       determines the length of the longest initial segment of wcs  which  consists  entirely  of
       wide-characters	not  listed  in reject.  In other words, it searches for the first occur-
       rence in the wide-character string wcs of any of  the  characters  in  the  wide-character
       string reject.

RETURN VALUE
       The  wcscspn()  function returns the number of wide characters in the longest initial seg-
       ment of wcs which consists entirely of wide-characters not listed  in  reject.	In  other
       words, it returns the position of the first occurrence in the wide-character string wcs of
       any of the characters in the wide-character string reject,  or  wcslen(wcs)  if	there  is
       none.

ATTRIBUTES

       The wcscspn() function is thread-safe.
