The strrchr() function in C/C++ locates the last occurrence of a character in a string. It returns a pointer to the last occurrence in the string. The terminating null character is considered part of the C string. Therefore, it can also be located to retrieve a pointer to the end of a string. It is defined in cstring header file.
const char* strrchr( const char* str, int ch ) or char* strrchr( char* str, int ch )
Parameter :The function takes two mandatory parameters which are described below:
- str : specifies the pointer to the null terminated string to be searched for.
- ch: specifies the character to be search for.
Return Value: The function returns a pointer to the last location of ch in string, if the ch is found. If not found, it returns a null pointer.
Below programs illustrate the above function:
