#include <strings.h> int strcasecmp(const char *s1, const char *s2); Compare the strings s1 and s2 ignoring case. int strncasecmp(const char *s1, const char *s2, size_t n); Compare the first n characters of the strings s1 and s2 ignoring case. char *index(const char *s, int c); Return a pointer to the first occurrence of the character c in the string s. char *rindex(const char *s, int c); Return a pointer to the last occurrence of the character c in the string s. #include <string.h> char *stpcpy(char *dest, const char *src); Copy a string from src to dest, returning a pointer to the end of the resulting string at dest. char *strcat(char *dest, const char *src); Append the string src to the string dest, returning a pointer dest. char *strchr(const char *s, int c); Return a pointer to the first occurrence of the character c in the string s. int strcmp(const char *s1, const char *s2); Compare the strings s1 with s2. int strcoll(const char *s1, const char *s2); Compare the strings s1 with s2 using the current locale. char *strcpy(char *dest, const char *src); Copy the string src to dest, returning a pointer to the start of dest. size_t strcspn(const char *s, const char *reject); Calculate the length of the initial segment of the string s which does not contain any of bytes in the string reject, char *strdup(const char *s); Return a duplicate of the string s in memory allocated using malloc(3). char *strfry(char *string); Randomly swap the characters in string. size_t strlen(const char *s); Return the length of the string s. char *strncat(char *dest, const char *src, size_t n); Append at most n characters from the string src to the string dest, returning a pointer to dest. int strncmp(const char *s1, const char *s2, size_t n); Compare at most n bytes of the strings s1 and s2. char *strncpy(char *dest, const char *src, size_t n); Copy at most n bytes from string src to dest, returning a pointer to the start of dest. char *strpbrk(const char *s, const char *accept); Return a pointer to the first occurrence in the string s of one of the bytes in the string accept. char *strrchr(const char *s, int c); Return a pointer to the last occurrence of the character c in the string s. char *strsep(char **stringp, const char *delim); Extract the initial token in stringp that is delimited by one of the bytes in delim. size_t strspn(const char *s, const char *accept); Calculate the length of the starting segment in the string s that consists entirely of bytes in accept. char *strstr(const char *haystack, const char *needle); Find the first occurrence of the substring needle in the string haystack, returning a pointer to the found substring. char *strtok(char *s, const char *delim); Extract tokens from the string s that are delimited by one of the bytes in delim. size_t strxfrm(char *dest, const char *src, size_t n); Transforms src to the current locale and copies the first n characters to dest.
The string functions perform string operations on null-terminated strings. See the individual man pages for descriptions of each function.

Personal Opportunity - Free software gives you access to billions of dollars of software at no cost. Use this software for your business, personal use or to develop a profitable skill. Access to source code provides access to a level of capabilities/information that companies protect though copyrights. Open source is a core component of the Internet and it is available to you. Leverage the billions of dollars in resources and capabilities to build a career, establish a business or change the world. The potential is endless for those who understand the opportunity.
Business Opportunity - Goldman Sachs, IBM and countless large corporations are leveraging open source to reduce costs, develop products and increase their bottom lines. Learn what these companies know about open source and how open source can give you the advantage.
Free Software provides computer programs and capabilities at no cost but more importantly, it provides the freedom to run, edit, contribute to, and share the software. The importance of free software is a matter of access, not price. Software at no cost is a benefit but ownership rights to the software and source code is far more significant.
Free Office Software - The Libre Office suite provides top desktop productivity tools for free. This includes, a word processor, spreadsheet, presentation engine, drawing and flowcharting, database and math applications. Libre Office is available for Linux or Windows.
The Free Books Library is a collection of thousands of the most popular public domain books in an online readable format. The collection includes great classical literature and more recent works where the U.S. copyright has expired. These books are yours to read and use without restrictions.
Source Code - Want to change a program or know how it works? Open Source provides the source code for its programs so that anyone can use, modify or learn how to write those programs themselves. Visit the GNU source code repositories to download the source.
Study at Harvard, Stanford or MIT - Open edX provides free online courses from Harvard, MIT, Columbia, UC Berkeley and other top Universities. Hundreds of courses for almost all major subjects and course levels. Open edx also offers some paid courses and selected certifications.
Linux Manual Pages - A man or manual page is a form of software documentation found on Linux/Unix operating systems. Topics covered include computer programs (including library and system calls), formal standards and conventions, and even abstract concepts.
