STRCHR(3)                BSD Library Functions Manual                STRCHR(3)

NAME
     strchr -- locate character in string

LIBRARY
     Standard C Library (libc, -lc)

SYNOPSIS
     #include <string.h>

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

DESCRIPTION
     The strchr() function locates the first occurrence of c in the string
     pointed to by s.  The terminating NUL character is considered part of the
     string.  If c is '\0', strchr() locates the terminating '\0'.

RETURN VALUES
     The function strchr() returns a pointer to the located character, or NULL
     if the character does not appear in the string.

EXAMPLES
     After the following call to strchr(), p will point to the string "oobar":

           char *p;
           char *s = "foobar";

           p = strchr(s, 'o');
