// These routines provide mem versions of standard C string routines,
// such as strpbrk. They function exactly the same as the str versions,
// so if you wonder what they are, replace the word "mem" by
// "str" and check out the man page. I could return void*, as the
// strutil.h mem*() routines tend to do, but I return char* instead
// since this is by far the most common way these functions are called.
// The difference between the mem and str versions is the mem version
// takes a pointer and a length, rather than a '\0'-terminated string.
// The memcase* routines defined here assume the locale is "C"
// (they use absl::ascii_tolower instead of tolower).
// These routines are based on the BSD library.
// Here's a list of routines from string.h, and their mem analogues.
// Functions in lowercase are defined in string.h; those in UPPERCASE
// are defined here:
// strlen --
// strcat strncat MEMCAT
// strcpy strncpy memcpy
// -- memccpy (very cool function, btw)
// -- memmove
// -- memset
// strcmp strncmp memcmp
// strcasecmp strncasecmp MEMCASECMP
// strchr memchr
// strcoll --
// strxfrm --
// strdup strndup MEMDUP
// strrchr MEMRCHR
// strspn MEMSPN
// strcspn MEMCSPN
// strpbrk MEMPBRK
// strtok --
// strprefix MEMPREFIX (strprefix is from strutil.h)
// strcaseprefix MEMCASEPREFIX (strcaseprefix is from strutil.h)
// strsuffix MEMSUFFIX (strsuffix is from strutil.h)
// strcasesuffix MEMCASESUFFIX (strcasesuffix is from strutil.h)
// -- MEMIS
// strcount MEMCOUNT (strcount is from strutil.h)
