strstr.c   [plain text]

/* Simple implementation of strstr for systems without it.
   This function is in the public domain.  */


@deftypefn Supplemental char* strstr (const char *@var{string}, const char *@var{sub})

This function searches for the substring @var{sub} in the string
@var{string}, not including the terminating null characters.  A pointer
to the first occurrence of @var{sub} is returned, or @code{NULL} if the
substring is absent.  If @var{sub} points to a string with zero
length, the function returns @var{string}.
