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

       memchr, memrchr, rawmemchr - scan memory for a character

       #include <string.h>

       void *memchr(const void *s, int c, size_t n);

       void *memrchr(const void *s, int c, size_t n);

       void *rawmemchr(const void *s, int c);

   Feature Test Macro Requirements for glibc (see feature_test_macros(7)):

       memrchr(), rawmemchr(): _GNU_SOURCE

       The  memchr()  function	scans  the  initial n bytes of the memory area
       pointed to by s for the first instance of c.  Both c and the  bytes  of
       the memory area pointed to by s are interpreted as unsigned char.

       The  memrchr()  function	 is like the memchr() function, except that it
       searches backward from the end of the n bytes pointed to by  s  instead
       of forward from the beginning.

       The  rawmemchr() function is similar to memchr(): it assumes (i.e., the
       programmer knows for certain) that an instance of c lies	 somewhere  in
       the  memory  area starting at the location pointed to by s, and so per‐
       forms an optimized search for c (i.e., no use of a  count  argument  to
       limit  the range of the search).	 If an instance of c is not found, the
       results are unpredictable.  The following  call	is  a  fast  means  of
       locating a string's terminating null byte:

	   char *p = rawmemchr(s, '\0');

       The  memchr()  and memrchr() functions return a pointer to the matching
       byte or NULL if the character does not occur in the given memory area.

       The rawmemchr() function returns a pointer to the matching byte, if one
       is found.  If no matching byte is found, the result is unspecified.

       rawmemchr() first appeared in glibc in version 2.1.

       memrchr() first appeared in glibc in version 2.2.

   Multithreading (see pthreads(7))
       The memchr(), memrchr(), and rawmemchr() functions are thread-safe.

       The memchr() function conforms to SVr4, 4.3BSD, C89, C99, POSIX.1-2001.

       The  memrchr()  function	 is  a	GNU  extension,	 available since glibc

       The rawmemchr() function is a GNU extension, available since glibc 2.1.
