INDEX(3) DragonFly Library Functions Manual INDEX(3)
index, rindex -- locate character in string
Standard C Library (libc, -lc)
index(const char *s, int c);
rindex(const char *s, int c);
The index() and rindex() functions have been deprecated in favor of
strchr(3) and strrchr(3).
The index() function locates the first occurrence of c (converted to a
char) in the string pointed to by s. The terminating null character is
considered part of the string; therefore if c is `\0', the functions
locate the terminating `\0'.
The rindex() function is identical to index(), except it locates the last
occurrence of c.
The functions index() and rindex() return a pointer to the located
character, or NULL if the character does not appear in the string.
memchr(3), strchr(3), strcspn(3), strpbrk(3), strrchr(3), strsep(3),
strspn(3), strstr(3), strtok(3)
The index() and rindex() functions appeared in Version 6 AT&T UNIX.
Their prototypes existed previously in <string.h> before they were moved
to <strings.h> for IEEE Std 1003.1-2001 (``POSIX.1'') compliance. The
functions are not specified by IEEE Std 1003.1-2008 (``POSIX.1'').
