       strxfrm - string transformation

       #include <string.h>

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

       The  strxfrm() function transforms the src string into a form such that
       the result of strcmp(3) on two strings that have been transformed  with
       strxfrm()  is  the  same as the result of strcoll(3) 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)).

       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

       SVr4, 4.3BSD, C89, C99.

       In  the	"POSIX"	 or "C" locales strxfrm() is equivalent to copying the
       string with strncpy(3).
