memrchr(), rawmemchr(): _GNU_SOURCE
The memrchr() function is like the memchr() function, except that it searches backward from the end of the n bytes pointed to by s instead of forward from the beginning.
The rawmemchr() function is similar to memchr(): it assumes (i.e., the programmer knows for certain) that an instance of c lies somewhere in the memory area starting at the location pointed to by s, and so performs an optimized search for c (i.e., no use of a count argument to limit the range of the search). If an instance of c is not found, the results are unpredictable. The following call is a fast means of locating a string's terminating null byte:
char *p = rawmemchr(s, '\0');
The rawmemchr() function returns a pointer to the matching byte, if one is found. If no matching byte is found, the result is unspecified.
memrchr() first appeared in glibc in version 2.2.
