The strnset() function is a builtin function in C and it sets the first n characters of a string to a given character. If n is greater than the length of string, the length of string is used in place of n.
char *strnset(const char *str, char ch, int n);
- str: This is the original string in which some character are replaced by a given character.
- ch: ch represents the given character.
- n: n represents the number of character which is replaced by the given character.
Return Value: It returns the modified string obtained after replacing the first characters of the given string str.
