strstr, strcasestrlocate a substring in a string

#include <string.h>

char *
strstr(const char *big, const char *little);

char *
strcasestr(const char *big, const char *little);

The () function locates the first occurrence of the NUL-terminated string little in the NUL-terminated string big.

The () function is similar to strstr() but ignores the case of both strings.

If little is an empty string, big is returned; if little occurs nowhere in big, NULL is returned; otherwise a pointer to the first character of the first occurrence of little is returned.
