memchr, memrchr, rawmemchr - scan memory for a character

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

   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
   performs 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.
