MirOS Manual: strcmp(3), strncmp(3)

STRCMP(3)                  BSD Programmer's Manual                   STRCMP(3)

NAME

     strcmp, strncmp - compare strings

SYNOPSIS

     #include <string.h>

     int
     strcmp(const char *s1, const char *s2);

     int
     strncmp(const char *s1, const char *s2, size_t len);

DESCRIPTION

     The strcmp() and strncmp() functions lexicographically compare the NUL-
     terminated strings s1 and s2.

RETURN VALUES

     The strcmp() and strncmp() return an integer greater than, equal to, or
     less than 0, according to whether the string s1 is greater than, equal
     to, or less than the string s2. The comparison is done using unsigned
     characters, so that '\200' is greater than '\0'.

     strncmp() compares at most len characters.

SEE ALSO

     bcmp(3), memcmp(3), strcasecmp(3), strcoll(3), strxfrm(3)

STANDARDS

     The strcmp() and strncmp() functions conform to ANSI X3.159-1989 ("ANSI
     C").
