NAME
       strxfrm - string	transformation

SYNOPSIS
       #include	<string.h>

       size_t strxfrm(char *dest, const	char *src, size_t n);

DESCRIPTION
       The  strxfrm() function transforms the src string into a	form such that
       the result of strcmp() on two strings that have been  transformed  with
       strxfrm()  is  the  same	 as the	result of strcoll() on the two strings
       before their transformation.  The first n characters of the transformed
       string  are  placed  in	dest.  The transformation is based on the pro-
       gram's current locale for category LC_COLLATE.  (See setlocale(3)).

RETURN VALUE
       The strxfrm() function returns the number of bytes  required  to	 store
       the  transformed	 string	in dest	excluding the terminating `\0' charac-
       ter.  If	the value returned is n	or more,  the  contents	 of  dest  are
       indeterminate.

CONFORMING TO
       SVID 3, BSD 4.3,	ISO 9899

NOTES
       In  the	"POSIX"	 or "C"	locales	strxfrm() is equivalent	to copying the
       string with strncpy().
