DESCRIPTIONThe strchr() function returns a pointer to the first occurrence of the character c in the string s.
The strrchr() function returns a pointer to the last occurrence of the character c in the string s.
The strchrnul() function is like strchr() except that if c is not found in s, then it returns a pointer to the null byte at the end of s, rather than NULL.
Here "character" means "byte"; these functions do not work with wide or multibyte characters.
RETURN VALUEThe strchr() and strrchr() functions return a pointer to the matched character or NULL if the character is not found. The terminating null byte is considered part of the string, so that if c is specified as '\0', these functions return a pointer to the terminator.
The strchrnul() function returns a pointer to the matched character, or a pointer to the null byte at the end of s (i.e., s+strlen(s)) if the character is not found.
VERSIONSstrchrnul() first appeared in glibc in version 2.1.1.
