wchar_t *wcstok(wchar_t *restrict ws1, const wchar_t *restrict ws2, wchar_t **restrict ptr);
A sequence of calls to wcstok() shall break the wide-character string pointed to by ws1 into a sequence of tokens, each of which shall be delimited by a wide-character code from the wide-character string pointed to by ws2. The ptr argument points to a caller-provided wchar_t pointer into which the wcstok() function shall store information necessary for it to continue scanning the same wide-character string.
The first call in the sequence has ws1 as its first argument, and is followed by calls with a null pointer as their first argument. The separator string pointed to by ws2 may be different from call to call.
The first call in the sequence shall search the wide-character string pointed to by ws1 for the first wide-character code that is not contained in the current separator string pointed to by ws2. If no such wide-character code is found, then there are no tokens in the wide-character string pointed to by ws1 and wcstok() shall return a null pointer. If such a wide-character code is found, it shall be the start of the first token.
The wcstok() function shall then search from there for a wide-character code that is contained in the current separator string. If no such wide-character code is found, the current token extends to the end of the wide-character string pointed to by ws1, and subsequent searches for a token shall return a null pointer. If such a wide-character code is found, it shall be overwritten by a null wide character, which terminates the current token. The wcstok() function shall save a pointer to the following wide-character code, from which the next search for a token shall start.
Each subsequent call, with a null pointer as the value of the first argument, shall start searching from the saved pointer and behave as described above.
The implementation shall behave as if no function calls wcstok().
