NAMEindex, rindex — locate character in string
LIBRARYStandard C Library (libc, -lc)
SYNOPSIS#include < strings.h>
index( const char *s, int c);
rindex( const char *s, int c);
The index() function locates the first occurrence of c (converted to a char) in the string pointed to by s. The terminating null character is considered part of the string; therefore if c is ‘
\0’, the functions locate the terminating ‘
The rindex() function is identical to index(), except it locates the last occurrence of c.
RETURN VALUESThe functions index() and rindex() return a pointer to the located character, or NULL if the character does not appear in the string.

HISTORYThe index() and rindex() functions appeared in Version 6 AT&T UNIX. Their prototypes existed previously in < string.h> before they were moved to < strings.h> for IEEE Std 1003.1-2001 (“POSIX.1”) compliance. The functions are not specified by IEEE Std 1003.1-2008 (“POSIX.1”).
