STRSPN(3) Linux Programmer's Manual STRSPN(3)NAME
strspn, strcspn - get length of a prefix substring
size_t strspn(const char *s, const char *accept);
size_t strcspn(const char *s, const char *reject);
The strspn() function calculates the length (in bytes) of the initial
segment of s which consists entirely of bytes in accept.
The strcspn() function calculates the length of the initial segment of
s which consists entirely of bytes not in reject.
The strspn() function returns the number of bytes in the initial seg‐
ment of s which consist only of bytes from accept.
The strcspn() function returns the number of bytes in the initial seg‐
ment of s which are not in the string reject.
