These tokens are separated in the string by at least one of the characters in .Fa ws2 . The first time that .Fn wcstok is called, .Fa ws1 should be specified; subsequent calls, wishing to obtain further tokens from the same string, should pass a null pointer instead. The separator string, .Fa ws2 , must be supplied each time, and may change between calls. The context pointer, .Fa ptr , must be provided on each call. .Pp The .Fn wcstok function is the wide character counterpart of the .Fn strtok_r function. .Sh RETURN VALUES The .Fn wcstok function returns a pointer to the beginning of each subsequent token in the string, after replacing the token itself with a null wide character (L'\e0'). When no more tokens remain, a null pointer is returned. .Sh EXAMPLES The following code fragment splits a wide character string on .Tn ASCII space, tab, and newline characters, writing the resulting tokens to standard output: .Bd -literal -offset indent const wchar_t *seps = L" \et\en"; wchar_t *last, *tok, text = L" \enone\ettwo\et\etthree \en"; for (tok = wcstok(text, seps, &last); tok != NULL; tok = wcstok(NULL, seps, &last)) wprintf(L"%ls\en", tok); .Ed .Sh COMPATIBILITY Some early implementations of .Fn wcstok omit the context pointer argument, .Fa ptr , and maintain state across calls in a static variable like .Fn strtok does. .Sh SEE ALSO .Xr strtok 3 , .Xr wcschr 3 , .Xr wcscspn 3 , .Xr wcspbrk 3 , .Xr wcsrchr 3 , .Xr wcsspn 3 .Sh STANDARDS The .Fn wcstok function conforms to .St -isoC-99 .
