#License - #Source code - #Example Use -


#include <librock/parse.h>

char *
        const char *psz, /* NUL terminated string to search */
        const char *tofind /* NUL terminated string, what to look for */


Returns pointer to first location in psz which matches all characters of tofind according to case insensitive comparison. (toupper(), tolower(), and librock_strncasecmp() are used.)

Typical use is wherever strstr() would be used.

See also librock_memistr().

#ifdef librock_TYPICAL_USE_stristr
    const char *buffer = "In the beginning,";
