WCSSTR(3)                 Linux Programmer's Manual                WCSSTR(3)

NAME         top

       wcsstr - locate a substring in a wide-character string

SYNOPSIS         top

       #include <wchar.h>

       wchar_t *wcsstr(const wchar_t *haystack, const wchar_t *needle);

DESCRIPTION         top

       The wcsstr() function is the wide-character equivalent of the
       strstr(3) function.  It searches for the first occurrence of the
       wide-character string needle (without its terminating null wide
       character (L'\0')) as a substring in the wide-character string
       haystack.

RETURN VALUE         top

       The wcsstr() function returns a pointer to the first occurrence of
       needle in haystack.  It returns NULL if needle does not occur as a
       substring in haystack.

       Note the special case: If needle is the empty wide-character string,
       the return value is always haystack itself.
