SYNOPSIS


.In string.h size_t strxfrm char * restrict dst const char * restrict src size_t n size_t strxfrm_l char * restrict dst const char *restrict src size_t n locale_t loc

DESCRIPTION

The strxfrm function transforms a null-terminated string pointed to by src according to the current locale collation if any, then copies the transformed string into dst. Not more than n characters are copied into dst, including the terminating null character added. If n is set to 0 (it helps to determine an actual size needed for transformation), dst is permitted to be a NULL pointer.

Comparing two strings using strcmp after strxfrm is equal to comparing two original strings with strcoll.

strxfrm_l does the same, however takes an explicit locale rather than the global locale.

RETURN VALUES

Upon successful completion, strxfrm and strxfrm_l return the length of the transformed string not including the terminating null character. If this value is n or more, the contents of dst are indeterminate.

SEE ALSO

setlocale(3), strcmp(3), strcoll(3), wcsxfrm(3)

STANDARDS

The strxfrm function conforms to -isoC. The strxfrm_l function conforms to -p1003.1-2008.
