       strxfrm - string transformation

       #include <string.h>

       size_t strxfrm(char *restrict s1, const char *restrict s2, size_t n);

       The strxfrm() function shall transform the string pointed to by s2 and place the resulting
       string into the array pointed to by s1. The transformation is such  that  if  strcmp()  is
       applied	to  two  transformed  strings, it shall return a value greater than, equal to, or
       less than 0, corresponding to the result of strcoll() applied to  the  same  two  original
       strings.  No  more  than  n  bytes  are	placed into the resulting array pointed to by s1,
       including the terminating null byte. If n is 0, s1 is permitted to be a null  pointer.  If
       copying takes place between objects that overlap, the behavior is undefined.

       The strxfrm() function shall not change the setting of errno if successful.

       Since  no  return  value is reserved to indicate an error, an application wishing to check
       for error situations should set errno to 0, then call strxfrm(), then check errno.

       Upon successful completion, strxfrm() shall return the length of  the  transformed  string
       (not  including	the  terminating null byte). If the value returned is n or more, the con-
       tents of the array pointed to by s1 are unspecified.

       On error, strxfrm() may set errno but no return value is reserved to indicate an error.

       The strxfrm() function may fail if:

       EINVAL The string pointed to by the s2 argument contains characters outside the domain  of
	      the collating sequence.

       The following sections are informative.


       The  transformation  function  is such that two transformed strings can be ordered by str-
       cmp() as appropriate to collating sequence information in the program's	locale	(category
       LC_COLLATE ).

       The  fact that when n is 0 s1 is permitted to be a null pointer is useful to determine the
       size of the s1 array prior to making the transformation.
