Namestrtok, strtok_r - extract tokens from strings
#include <string.h> char *strtok(char *s, const char *delim); char *strtok_r(char *s, const char *delim, char **ptrptr);
DescriptionA `token' is a nonempty string of characters not occurring in the string delim, followed by \0 or by a character occurring in delim.
The strtok() function can be used to parse the string s into tokens. The first call to strtok() should have s as its first argument. Subsequent calls should have the first argument set to NULL. Each call returns a pointer to the next token, or NULL when no more tokens are found.
If a token ends with a delimiter, this delimiting character is overwritten with a \0 and a pointer to the next character is saved for the next call to strtok(). The delimiter string delim may be different for each call.
The strtok_r() function is a reentrant version of the strtok() function, which instead of using its own static buffer, requires a pointer to a user allocated char*. This pointer, the ptrptr parameter, must be the same while parsing the same string.
BugsNever use these functions. If you do, note that:
These functions modify their first argument.
Return ValueThe strtok() function returns a pointer to the next token, or NULL if there are no more tokens.
