strxfrm -- transform a string under locale
Standard C Library (libc, -lc)
strxfrm(char * restrict dst, const char * restrict src, size_t n);
The strxfrm() function transforms a null-terminated string pointed to by
src according to the current locale collation if any, then copies the
transformed string into dst. Not more than n characters are copied into
dst, including the terminating null character added. If n is set to 0
(it helps to determine an actual size needed for transformation), dst is
permitted to be a NULL pointer.
Comparing two strings using strcmp() after strxfrm() is equal to comparing
two original strings with strcoll().
Upon successful completion, strxfrm() returns the length of the transformed
string not including the terminating null character. If this
value is n or more, the contents of dst are indeterminate.

The strxfrm() function conforms to ISO/IEC 9899:1990 (``ISO C89'').
