WCSTOK(P)			    POSIX Programmer's Manual				WCSTOK(P)

NAME
       wcstok - split a wide-character string into tokens

SYNOPSIS
       #include <wchar.h>

       wchar_t *wcstok(wchar_t *restrict ws1, const wchar_t *restrict ws2,
	      wchar_t **restrict ptr);

DESCRIPTION
       A  sequence  of	calls to wcstok() shall break the wide-character string pointed to by ws1
       into a sequence of tokens, each of which shall be delimited by a wide-character code  from
       the  wide-character string pointed to by ws2. The ptr argument points to a caller-provided
       wchar_t pointer into which the wcstok() function shall store information necessary for  it
       to continue scanning the same wide-character string.

       The  first  call  in  the sequence has ws1 as its first argument, and is followed by calls
       with a null pointer as their first argument. The separator string pointed to by ws2 may be
       different from call to call.

       The  first  call  in the sequence shall search the wide-character string pointed to by ws1
       for the first wide-character code that is not contained in the  current	separator  string
       pointed	to  by	ws2. If no such wide-character code is found, then there are no tokens in
       the wide-character string pointed to by ws1 and wcstok() shall return a null  pointer.  If
       such a wide-character code is found, it shall be the start of the first token.

       The  wcstok() function shall then search from there for a wide-character code that is con-
       tained in the current separator string. If no such wide-character code is found, the  cur-
       rent  token  extends to the end of the wide-character string pointed to by ws1, and subse-
       quent searches for a token shall return a null pointer. If such a wide-character  code  is
       found,  it  shall  be  overwritten  by a null wide character, which terminates the current
       token. The wcstok() function shall save a pointer to the  following  wide-character  code,
       from which the next search for a token shall start.

       Each  subsequent call, with a null pointer as the value of the first argument, shall start
       searching from the saved pointer and behave as described above.

       The implementation shall behave as if no function calls wcstok().

RETURN VALUE
       Upon successful completion, the wcstok() function shall return  a  pointer  to  the  first
       wide-character  code of a token.  Otherwise, if there is no token, wcstok() shall return a
       null pointer.
