STRCHR(3)                 OpenBSD Programmer's Manual                STRCHR(3)

     strchr, index - locate first occurrence of a character in a string

     #include <string.h>

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

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

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

     The index() function is an old synonym for strchr().

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

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

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

           p = strchr(s, 'o');

     memchr(3),  strcspn(3),  strpbrk(3),  strrchr(3),  strsep(3),  strspn(3),
      strstr(3),  strtok(3)

     The strchr() function conforms to ANSI X3.159-1989 (``ANSI C'').

     The index() function is deprecated and shouldn't be used in new code.
