RINDEX(3)                BSD Library Functions Manual                RINDEX(3)

NAME
     rindex -- locate character in string

LIBRARY
     Standard C Library (libc, -lc)

SYNOPSIS
     #include <strings.h>

     char *
     rindex(const char *s, int c);

DESCRIPTION
     The rindex() function locates the last character matching c (converted to
     a char) in the nul-terminated string s.

     This function is obsolete.  The equivalent function strrchr(3) should be
     used instead.

RETURN VALUES
     A pointer to the character is returned if it is found; otherwise NULL is
     returned.  If c is '\0', rindex() locates the terminating '\0'.

SEE ALSO
     index(3), memchr(3), strchr(3), strcspn(3), strpbrk(3), strrchr(3),
     strsep(3), strspn(3), strstr(3), strtok(3)

STANDARDS
     The rindex() function conforms to IEEE Std 1003.1-2001 (``POSIX.1'').
     The IEEE Std 1003.1-2004 (``POSIX.1'') revision marked it as legacy and
     recommended the use of strrchr(3) instead.  The IEEE Std 1003.1-2008
     (``POSIX.1'') revision removed rindex() from the specification.

HISTORY
     A rindex() function appeared in Version 6 AT&T UNIX.
