NAME
strcspn -- span the complement of a string LIBRARY
Standard C Library (libc, -lc) SYNOPSIS
#include <string.h> size_t strcspn(const char *s1, const char *s2); DESCRIPTION
The strcspn() function spans the initial part of the null-terminated string s1, as long as the characters from s1 do not occur in string s2 (it spans the complement of s2). In other words, it computes the string array index in s1 of the first character of s1 which is also in s2, else the index of the first null character. RETURN VALUES
The strcspn() function returns the number of characters spanned. SEE ALSO
memchr(3), strchr(3), strpbrk(3), strrchr(3), strsep(3), strspn(3), strstr(3), strtok(3) STANDARDS
The strcspn() function conforms to ISO/IEC 9899:1990 (``ISO C90''). BSD

NAME
strspn, strcspn -- span a string LIBRARY
Standard C Library (libc, -lc) SYNOPSIS
#include <string.h> size_t strspn(const char *s, const char *charset); size_t strcspn(const char *s, const char *charset); DESCRIPTION
The strspn() function spans the initial part of the null-terminated string s as long as the characters from s occur in the null-terminated string charset. In other words, it computes the string array index of the first character of s which is not in charset, else the index of the first null character. The strcspn() function spans the initial part of the null-terminated string s as long as the characters from s do not occur in the null-ter- minated string charset (it spans the complement of charset). In other words, it computes the string array index of the first character of s which is also in charset, else the index of the first null character. RETURN VALUES
The strspn() and strcspn() functions return the number of characters spanned. SEE ALSO
memchr(3), strchr(3), strpbrk(3), strrchr(3), strsep(3), strstr(3), strtok(3), wcsspn(3) STANDARDS
The strspn() and strcspn() functions conform to ISO/IEC 9899:1990 (``ISO C90''). BSD
