From the man page:

BUGS Never use this function. If you do, note that:
This function modifies its first argument.
The identity of the delimiting character is lost.
This functions cannot be used on constant strings.
The strtok () function uses a static buffer while
parsing, so it's not thread safe. Use strtok_r ()
if this matters to
you.
