Extract token from string
#include <string.h> char *strsep(char **stringp, const char *delim);
Feature Test Macro Requirements for glibc (see feature_test_macros(7)):
If *stringp is NULL, the strsep() function returns NULL and does nothing else. Otherwise, this function finds the first token in the string *stringp, that is delimited by one of the bytes in the string delim. This token is terminated by overwriting the delimiter with a null byte ('\0'), and *stringp is updated to point past the token. In case no delimiter was found, the token is taken to be the entire string *stringp, and *stringp is made NULL.
The strsep() function returns a pointer to the token, that is, it returns the original value of *stringp.
The strsep() function is thread-safe.
Be cautious when using this function. If you do use it, note that:
This function modifies its first argument.
This function cannot be used on constant strings.
The identity of the delimiting character is lost.
