SYNOPSIS

#include <string.h>

size_t
strspn(const char *s, const char *charset);

strcspn(const char *s, const char *charset);

DESCRIPTION

The strspn() function spans the initial part of the null-terminated string s as long as the characters from s occur in the null-terminated string charset. In other words, it computes the string array index of the first character of s which is not in charset, else the index of the first null character.

The strcspn() function spans the initial part of the null-terminated string s as long as the characters from s do not occur in the null-terminated string charset (it spans the complement of charset ). In other words, it computes the string array index of the first character of s which is also in charset, else the index of the first null character.

RETURN VALUES

The strspn() and strcspn() functions return the number of characters spanned.
