memmem -- locate substring in byte string
Standard C Library (libc, -lc)
memmem(const void *block, size_t blen, const void *pat, size_t plen);
The memmem() function locates the first occurrence of the binary string
pat of size plen bytes in the byte string block of size blen bytes.
The memmem() function returns a pointer to the substring located, or NULL
if no such substring exists within block.
If plen is zero, block is returned, i.e. a zero length pat is deemed to
match the start of the string, as with strstr(3).
bm(3), memchr(3), strchr(3), strstr(3)
The memmem() function is not currently standardized. However, it is
meant to be API compatible with functions in FreeBSD and Linux.
memmem() first appeared in the Free Software Foundation's glibc library.
