NAME

strcspn -- span the complement of a string

LIBRARY

Standard C Library (libc, -lc)

SYNOPSIS

#include <string.h> size_t strcspn(const char *s, const char *charset);

DESCRIPTION

The strcspn() function spans the initial part of the null-terminated string s as long as the characters from s do not occur in string charset (it spans the complement of charset). In other words, it computes the string array index in s of the first character of s which is also in charset, else the index of the first null character.

RETURN VALUES

The strcspn() function returns the number of characters spanned.
