// Using strspn()/wcsspn()/_mbsspn()

#include <stdio.h>

#include <string.h>

 

int main(void)

{

char *string1 = "The initial value is 3.14159";

char *string2 = "aehilsTuv";

 

printf(" Using strspn()\n");

printf(" ---------------\n");

printf("string1 = %s\n", string1);

printf("string2 = %s\n", string2);

printf("\nThe length of the initial segment of string1\n");

printf("containing only characters from string2 is = %u\n", strspn(string1, string2));

 

return 0;

}

 

Output example:

 

Using strspn()

---------------

string1 = The initial value is 3.14159

string2 = aehilsTuv

The length of the initial segment of string1

containing only characters from string2 is = 3
