Procedure

   SpiceInt isrchc_c ( ConstSpiceChar  * value,
                       SpiceInt          ndim,   
                       SpiceInt          lenvals,
                       const void      * array   ) 

Abstract

 
   Search for a given value within a character string array. Return 
   the index of the first matching array entry, or -1 if the key 
   value was not found. 
 

Required_Reading

 
   None. 
 

Keywords

 
   ARRAY,  SEARCH 
 

Brief_I/O

 
   VARIABLE  I/O              DESCRIPTION 
   --------  ---  -------------------------------------------------- 
   value      I   Key value to be found in array. 
   ndim       I   Dimension of array. 
   lenvals    I   String length.
   array      I   Character string array to search. 

   The function returns the index of the first matching array 
   element or -1 if the value is not found. 

Detailed_Input

 
   value       is the key value to be found in the array.  Trailing
               blanks in this key are not significant:  string matches
               found by this routine do not require trailing blanks in
               value to match those in the corresponding element of
               array.

   ndim        is the dimension of the array. 

   lenvals     is the declared length of the strings in the input
               string array, including null terminators.  The input   
               array should be declared with dimension 

                  [ndim][lenvals]
 
   array       is the array of character srings to be searched.  Trailing
               blanks in the strings in this array are not significant.
 

Detailed_Output

 
   The function returns the index of the first matching array 
   element in array. If value is not found, isrchc_c returns -1. 
 

Parameters

 
   None. 
 

Exceptions

 
   1) If ndim < 1 the function value is -1.  This is not considered
      an error.

   2) If input key value pointer is null, the error SPICE(NULLPOINTER) will 
      be signaled.  The function returns -1.
 
   3) The input key value may have length zero.  This case is not
      considered an error.

   4) If the input array pointer is null,  the error SPICE(NULLPOINTER) will 
      be signaled.  The function returns -1.

   5) If the input array string's length is less than 2, the error
      SPICE(STRINGTOOSHORT) will be signaled.  The function returns -1.

Examples

 
   The following table shows the value of isrchc_c given the contents 
   of array and value: 
 
      array                 value     isrchc_c 
    -----------------       -----     -------- 
    "1", "0", "4", "2"       "4"          2
    "1", "0", "4", "2"       "2"          3 
    "1", "0", "4", "2"       "3"         -1 
 

Restrictions

 
   1)  String comparisons performed by this routine are Fortran-style:
       trailing blanks in the input array or key value are ignored.
       This gives consistent behavior with CSPICE code generated by
       the f2c translator, as well as with the Fortran SPICE Toolkit.
      
       Note that this behavior is not identical to that of the ANSI
       C library functions strcmp and strncmp.
     
   None.
