Find the last occurrence of a character in a string

Synopsis:

#include <string.h>

const char* strrchr(const char* s, 
                          int c );

Since:

Description:

The strrchr() function locates the last occurrence of c (converted to a char) in the string pointed to by s. The terminating null character is considered to be part of the string.

Returns:

A pointer to the located character, or a NULL pointer if the character doesn't occur in the string.

Examples:

#include <stdio.h>
#include <stdlib.h>
#include <string.h>

int main( void )
  {
    printf( "%s\n", strrchr( "abcdeabcde", 'a' ) );
    if( strrchr( "abcdeabcde", 'x' ) == NULL )
      printf( "NULL\n" );
    return EXIT_SUCCESS;
  }

produces the output:

abcde
NULL
