RedHat 9 (Linux i386) - man page for strxfrm (redhat section 3)

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

NAME
       strxfrm - string transformation

SYNOPSIS
       #include <string.h>

       size_t strxfrm(char *dest, const char *src, size_t n);

DESCRIPTION
       The  strxfrm() function transforms the src string into a form such that the result of str-
       cmp() on two strings that have been transformed with strxfrm() is the same as  the  result
       of  strcoll()  on  the two strings before their transformation.	The first n characters of
       the transformed string are placed in dest.  The transformation is based on  the	program's
       current locale for category LC_COLLATE.	(See setlocale(3)).

RETURN VALUE
       The  strxfrm()  function  returns  the  number  of bytes required to store the transformed
       string in dest excluding the terminating `\0' character.  If the value returned	is  n  or
       more, the contents of dest are indeterminate.

CONFORMING TO
       SVID 3, BSD 4.3, ISO 9899

NOTES
       In  the	"POSIX"  or  "C"  locales  strxfrm()  is  equivalent  to  copying the string with
       strncpy().
